Soooo...yeah...mornings...ummm...mornings are hard, you guys.
My success at getting up and running in the mornings has been a bit hit or miss. I did well over the weekend and managed to drag myself out of bed for a morning run on both Saturday and Sunday, but then this morning happened. Or didn't happen.
My alarm went off. I turned it off. I went back to bed. It is amazing that i even made it to work on time.
I'm trying not to let it bother me. I have been running and working out (I also do a couple of days of strength training a week, plus I've started go for long walks after dinner each night) consistently since I set my goals, so that's step one. And I'll be able to run tonight after work. In fact, I may go to the gym and run on the treadmill (aka in the air conditioning) and start working on speed. I've decided to break my speed goal into smaller, more manageable goals. Right now, I'm consistently trapped at a slow jog at over 12 minutes per mile, so my first goal is simply to get that down to 12 minutes. Once I'm there, my goal will be 11:30. Then 11 minutes. And so on and so forth.
