So . . . drum roll please . . . I got up this morning at the ungodly hour of 5:30am and went outside to run. I seriously hate getting up so early (it's only 30 min earlier, but still, 30 min is 30 min). =) I was even able to drag myself out of bed after a horrible night's sleep. I was up at least 4 times last night.
I loved the feeling of running in the morning. I met a fellow runner and she was bright eyed and chipper and said "good morning!" I think I grunted a "morning" back. =) But I do like the cool air and the empty streets. You know, when I see a runner in the early morning, I always think "they really love exercising to be out that early." So I felt like that's what other people thought about me today. =) However, no audiobook for me today, I needed the music to get me motivated to get out the door. Anyway, I felt great after my run and I'm planning on doing Insanity this afternoon.
I think I'd like to try to get up on Thursday too, but I don't know if I'll be able to. I'm able to drag myself out of bed about 1 in 100 times. But I'm not doing any exercise tomorrow, so maybe that'll motivate me again. It definitely helped me this morning, knowing that I didn't run yesterday.
|From my 11 miler on Sunday|
Last week my weekly mileage was 29.5 miles, which is my highest weekly mileage (I did have one week higher, but I did 2 long runs that week and I don't count it.) This week my mileage will be down. I'm going to Spokane, WA for Bloomsday so I won't be doing a long run. I'm walking the 12K (7.46 miles) with my sister. I grew up in eastern WA but never went to see Bloomsday in person, so I'm kinda excited to see what it's like. I've heard that there's a really killer hill, Doomsday Hill, so I am happy I'm walking this year to check it out. Next year I really want to run it. =)
