My club runs on a Thursday evening at 7pm. They’re a friendly and inclusive bunch who usually take good care of the slower runners. I enjoy my runs with them and know I get a lot out of going along such as pushing my pace and meeting new people. After a run I’m usually home at about 8:20, then there is stretching, foam rolling, icing my ankle and finally dinner sometime after 9pm.
The problem is that I get home from work at 5pm. If I run as soon as I get home I will be back about 6pm, dinner at 7 and curled up on the sofa not long after. In winter the lure of the sofa is frequently too, too great.
So tonight I ran 3.5 miles on my own. Looks like the sofa won again!
