How elusive you are to me, morning run. I know of you. I've experienced you before. I know of your benefits: the cooler temperature, a more pleasant quality to the air, less traffic on my route, less people in the way, the mere fact that my daily run would be out of the way first thing in the morning!!
I hold you in my awareness almost daily, especially true when I'm fight training, i.e. now. But moving you from my awareness and making you a part of my reality, morning run, that part has alluded me.
I have not for the life of me been able to get myself out of bed until the very latest minute that I can without being late, or rather without being unacceptably late. lol
Well that held true until this week. You see a friend of mine told me that my working out so much inspired him to take a 5:30am boot camp class this past Tuesday. And I was like "wait a minute... If I inspired YOU to do that, I better inspire myself to get my butt out of bed and go for my run". Actually he inspired me right? Right. So I've been on my morning run, every day this week, even today when I had to be at work at 7:30am so yes I woke up at 5:30am.
It was great! and I feel great.
I highly recommend it and I will highly recommend it for myself next week, in case I would tend to forget that I managed to do it for a week and that I didn't die. I was fine and actually better off. YAY!
