Morning run with the SUPER BLUE MOON.
I haven't done a double in YEARS. I used to be addicted to exercise and did two hours of cardio a day. It was horrible and not healthy at all. But I have been out of that terrible cycle for nearly five years.
So why did I suddenly decide to do a double yesterday? Several reasons...
1. I had a two hour break after work before having to leave for rehearsal and I was scared that if I didn't get my body moving I would crash on the couch and not want to get up. (I only got 2.5 hours of sleep the night before.)
2. I am having some body image issues at the moment.
3. There are a couple things stressing me out and running helps me unwind.
My plan was to do 2 miles but secretly knew I would do 3 if I felt good. Well I felt so good that I ended up with 4! And I was 30 seconds faster per mile after work than before work.
Do you do doubles?
What helps you unwind besides running?
