Usually, I am in bed by 9. This gives me enough sleep. But not recently. Mike has been working, a lot. I am overjoyed with this because he is a self-employed real estate agent/appraiser and working means an income. Since a few days after Christmas, he has been working daily for almost 10-12 hours. This includes New Year's Day, MLK day and Sundays. So if I want to see my husband and have an actual face to face conversation, I have to stay up a bit later. Some nights can be as late as 11:30. I cannot get up at 4:15 after staying up this late, especially if I have wine.
So in lieu of spinning, I am aching to return to another favorite of mine, running. The problem with running? Well, actually there are two--my knees. They got really messed up a few years back. My running friends have told me if I have the right shoes, it should be OK.
We have a fancy running shoes store near us. A pair of shoes is about the cost of a month at the gym. I am thinking about putting a hold on the gym and buying those shoes. I could run around 5:30 am before Mike leaves and then be home in time to get all ready for their day.
And I love running. There is that great rush you get, the outside air, the calmness of it all. Once you get past the first 10 minutes, it's a real thrill.
Beside, it will fit in my new schedule.
Any runners have a tip they'd like to share on shoes or training?
