Friday a la Forrest Gump.

Friday is finally here! This morning, I rolled out of bed at 5 am and started prepping for a trip to the gym. Once I got there, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for my work out, but I headed to the treadmill and figured I'd warm up first and figure the rest out later.

A few minutes into my warm-up jog, this guy showed up:

I soon realized that indeed, I just felt like runnin'. I settled into comfortable pace, about 11 min./mile and stuck with it. A little slower than what I usually aim for, but I didn't see the point in aiming for super-speed if I was just gonna burn out and keep taking walking breaks anyway.

I kept changing my mind about how long I wanted to run. Four miles? 5k? I finally said "fuggit" and just went with how good I was feeling. Five miles later, it was time to cool down and start getting ready for work. I surprised myself because I haven't ran in over a week. I thought I'd top out at 2 miles, but I guess my body was just ready to move for a little longer. A lot of good songs came up on shuffle, but one of my favorites was a fun track from We Are Wolves:

I love music so damn much. Even more so when it makes me want to pick up my speed and keep going!

I suppose that's all for today. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
