  • 3.81 KM + 6.16 KM Treadmill Runs

    This week is the first week that I’ve had access to a gym in a long time. I hadn’t used a treadmill in a very long time as well, and it was a welcome change from running on the streets. Although I still prefer going outside for runs, having access to a full-on spa makes…

  • Instagram & My 4 KM Night Run

    I came home at about 22:30 and on the ride, I wondered what I’d do. When I came home, I decided that I would skip working late and go out for a run. Once I was out, I immediately felt last night’s run in my legs. That’s to be expected. It also was harder than…
