I did it! I got myself up and ran this morning.
Now, to be fair I woke up at 3AM. I needed a potty break, and I just could NOT get back to sleep. So I sat in bed on my iPad reading some running blogs. I blame them, I became so excited I couldn’t sleep!
At 4am, I managed to take a mini-nap until 4:45. I meant to get up at 5, but I figured what’s 15 minutes. So I got up and got all ready and rarin’ to go.
All my gear laid out for my zombie-fied self.
The route I wanted to take went out the window once I realized the street lights didn’t kick on til 6am. Yeah, need to do my research. So I pretty much ran down my street to a school and ran around that a zillion times, as well as their basketball course. It was actually really nice …I got to think about what I was going to make for breakfast (It’s settled on two eggs and half a cheese/jalepeno quesadilla) sort out my thoughts for work on the day, and even sing some songs to myself! Hey, it’s 5am …there was literally NO ONE out. I did see a stray cat, though.
All in all, I’m sure I will do this morning run again. I don’t think I can muster up the energy to do it all the time, but time will tell. I still plan on hitting the gym after work for a quick run as well ….depending on how my legs feel. I don’t want to over do it. Then comes two days of rest before a long run Saturday!
Pre-run, clearly ….the bags under my eyes so big I should sell them at Coach. And my huge round squishable fox that I use as stand in pillow.
The run wasn’t as long as I wanted it to be. Actually, wait. I agreed on a 2 mile run yesterday, and I did 2.79. So shut up, Robyn. The problem I’m having is the app I use on my phone to track my miles NEVER matches up to my ipod nano. My nano said I did 3.1 miles, but RunKeeper said 2.79. So, I will go with the one with an actual GPS tracker in it.
Sorry, I cannot see myself splashing out 200 bucks on a running watch. No way, maybe a Christmas gift? But no …not when I’m not even doing 5 miles. There is just not a need for that in my life.
Om nom nom ….two eggs, quesadilla and banana! 🙂
Anyways, I am off to get ready for the day now! I might not even need coffee……OK let’s not get carried away here.
‘Til next run!
