Week 3 day 2 and of course I pick more paranormal stories to run with.
Today, I played around with the timing of my run. With the Saxenda, it takes me longer to be hungry so making and eating dinner right when I get off work isn’t as convenient. I’m just not as hungry. This time, I changed right into my workout gear, did my 28 minute run, THEN made dinner after I cleaned up. I have to say, I do feel better. I have a limited amount of time between getting home from work and sleep and running with a full stomach doesn’t always feel the best (depending on what I eat). I’ve read conflicting articles about if it’s better to eat before a run or after and I’ve just decided to do whatever feels best to me. It’ll take more than one day of this but on days I’m off or work late; I run early in the morning before I eat breakfast and I like it. Mostly because it’s the ‘hardest’ part of the day done and the rest of the day seems easier.
But I’m also not the ‘get up at 5am’ type. I like my sleep and write in the evenings sometimes until 11pm. I’m too old to get only 4-5 hours of sleep and function properly the next day.
