For the past few weeks I’ve been setting my alarm early to go for a run outside before work, but it just does not happen. I wake up feeling groggy desperately needing an extra hour of sleep so that’s what I do. This morning I told myself I was not going to “sleep in”. I was out the door by 6:45 am–still not necessarily as early as I would have liked to be out and moving but at least I made it and was able to log 2-3 miles.
As spring will soon turn to summer I look forward to getting out the door early. In all honesty, there is not much of a choice in the matter because beating the heat and humidity by running early in the morning is a must! The rest of the day is so much more pleasing when my workout has already been covered. So I’ll be working on my marathon-training schedule to make morning runs a priority this summer. Sleeping until 7 am will seem like a luxury soon enough!
