Yeah, I really am slower in the dark

Today was another pre-dawn run. This time, the dark was accompanied by rain. Fun, fun.

I definitely run slower in the dark. I am pretty sure it's because I am afraid of tripping and falling. So I am extra cautious in the dark. That's OK. At least I am out there getting my workout done.

Today called for three miles. That is what I did. Came home soaked with rain and sweat. Guess that's the sign of a good run. :-)

Tomorrow's a rest day, according to the program. I think I will take advantage of that!

Yesterday's stats:
Time: 30 minutes

Today's stats:
Distance: 3 miles

Being slow is ok, but are you trying to keep a certain heart rate, then going slower might not be effecient for your trainiing.

You got out there and you got it done. That's the most important part.

Great job getting out there in the rain.

You should be careful when running in the dark, so easy to trip on smth. No need to set world records! Good on you for getting out the door in the raining dark!
