ok a couple more tips from today's run.
Charge your iPod at night. I run in the morning and this morning my iPod was dead and it delayed me by 2 hours to start running.
Just because you ran 4 miles yesterday, doesn't mean you can run 4 miles today. I try to stay consistant with how far I run, but every now and then my body refuses to work with me and says why are we running again? Today I barely got through a 2 mile run. I wasn't cramping, but my legs felt about 50lbs heavier today while running which made it extra difficult.
Run early in the morning when it is cooler outside. As noted above I was delayed by 2 hours. The temp at 8am was a nice 65, the temp at 10am was 74. That's a big difference.
Don't censor me bro!
