I know many of you are already "morning runners" but I am not. During the work week, I generally run in the evening, but with a high heat and humidity warning issued for the rest of the week, I decided that perhaps this morning running thing had to happen...
I made plans with my trusty running buddy Suz, set all my clothes out before I went to bed, set the alarm, planned what to have as a mini-breakfast and set myself up for a successful morning run.
|AM not PM|
By 5:50 I was out the door and ready to run. It was definitely easier to get out the door knowing that someone would be waiting for me! Sure, it took a bit for the legs to feel like they wanted to be moving, and the tempo miles were tough- but aren't they always?
The run was done before the heat really sets in and I can always grab an extra cup of coffee if I start to feel groggy. All in all, a morning run success! And the extra good news- it is wine Wednesday!*
Are you a morning runner? Do you need to bribe yourself to get up early or do you just not bother?
*as Suz and I were planning our run last night she ended the text message exchange with "at least we have wine Wednesday"
