My car needed an oil change. I always prefer to drop my car off at the place on Friday night so they can work on it first thing Saturday morning. I picked a new place that was close to my house and instead of having my husband follow me or meet me there I went home, changed into running clothes and drove to the place. I then ran home..adding in more mileage to give me a total of 4.3 miles for the run.
When my car was ready this morning I put on my running clothes and ran the 2.5 miles to the place to pick it up.
Not only did I get in two great workouts but I saved money on gas and I reduced my carbon footprint. Sounds like a win-win to me!
To make it an even better run for me, I went faster than normal this morning but didn't slow myself down since I knew I had less than 3 miles to go. I ended up with negative splits! Woohoo!
The guy that checked me out at the business also talked to me about running and said I looked like I was in great shape. I'll take complements any day of the week.
