Early Monday morning run and WOD was easy on the way out to our designated area around .8 miles out. There were plenty of benches in the shade with muddy field surrounding our area. I guess selecting the clean benches was a mistake for Selene, and Eric due to them being bitten by the mosquitos.
I fared better with a disgusting bench, yet we all had the same look when we started the Bulgarian split squats. They’re hard especially immediately after a run. Lots of under the breath remarks …… you know who you are. Lol, it is hard not to stop and laugh sometimes. Tight muscles were Not an issue this morning, it was the heat, and humidity.
I wanted to go and blitz through it, then after the split squats my body just laid it on me with a faucet of sweat all at once. It was like something inside said let’s wait until he wants to speed up and let it go. ‘Nene, and Eric decided to do their Superman’s and v-up sit ups in top of the benches so the mosquitoes had their meal then. I don’t mind the mud it actually cooled me off fairly well prior to the run back. No mosquitoes wanted a piece of me at all. I felt a left out. Not!
Taking my time is not an option on exercises, and yet fatigue set in at the sit ups. It’s amazing how fast I think I’m going only to find myself also feeling like I’m spinning my wheels not moving at all. The run back was plenty of stop and go since we tried to keep no more than 20yd distance between each runner so either we slowed down enough or stopped to keep each other together until the finish.
How I enjoy early morning runs, and/or workouts. It makes my day so much easier to deal with, and a dash of mental focus not found with coffee alone. The benefits of mental and physical stress relief and control is paramount for the population. How does working out help you? What time of day works best for you?
Hope to see you here soon.
