Dutchie I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

Was up late, so instead of a run I did an upper body endurance strength training, pyramid style. Plus abs.
Will do my run after work then. I'm so fed up with running in the dark!

7.12K interval on the TM.
I initially started out debating whether I should run or not while driving home. When I got home I made the decision to run 3K only. As I was running and was doing really well, I thought I should run 30 minutes. When the clock on the TM said 30min. I wasn't far off the 5K. So why not finish till I got to 5K. When I got there I realised that I was only a few minutes away from the originally planned 6K. So why not. I finished the 6K in 38:02min. Then I decided to make it a full 40 minutes. Nice round number. But I later decided that 6.5K would be a nicer round number. But when I reached that I thought 45 minutes would be really good today. So I did.
Well, that's how I often talk myself into a longer run on the TM. You won't find me doing that when I'm outside with the dogs
ETA: in case your wondering why I was debating to run at all, I hurt my ankle in the office. Don't ask me how, cause I don't know, but I suddenly had a painful right ankle. No reason that I could find. It's still painful to the touch. So I'm just not touching
