Partly cloudy, but still a great day!

Running in the Cold – Day 20
November 27, 2020.
Happy day after Thanksgiving!
My pre-run meal – Empty stomach run. No coffee, no water.

Why I like running in the morning

I like to start my day with a morning run for a variety of reasons. Here is my list:

  • The weather is often cooler in the morning during the summer months, making it more comfortable for running.
  • Running in the light of day may feel safer than running after dark especially later in the year with shorter days.
  • A morning workout provides an energy boost to help jumpstart my day.

Running Gear Checklist

It is partly cloudy this morning with the wind at a moderate 6 mph at run time.
My pre-run checklist:

  • Empty stomach fitness run. For my early morning run, I will wait to eat after my workout.
  • Warm-up stretches include some squats, high kicks (front and back), lunges, and pulling knees to chest
  • Power check for my phone and AirPods

On the Run – Before and After

My run in the cold was enjoyable. Really like getting my workout completed earlier in the day during my days off.

I really need to seriously consider buying new running shoes. When I analyze how I feel during my run, my feet are noticeable sore.

Also thinking about purchasing lightweight running gloves like these. I have running mittens, but they are too warm for the current weather.

November Running Challenge Streak – Alive and Kicking

I’m officially two-thirds of the way completed. The weather forecast looks promising next week. Monday will be a rainy run, but the rest of the week should be fine.

Post-run snack – (4) egg whites and (2) slices of bacon, cooked together. 1/3 cup of Steel Cut Oats with a splash of 1% milk.
