After a nice long weekend (yay for Monday holidays), I have managed to get up two mornings in a row for an early morning run before work. It has been a battle both mornings. This morning especially. My bed was so warm and cozy and my muscles were so, so sore from kettlebells last night. The fight went something like this:
Me: "I don't want to get up. I'm tired."
Also me: "Get your ass out of bed, you will feel better once you start running."
Me: "But it's cold out."
Also me: "It's not that cold. Shut up and get out of bed."
Me: "I'll run later."
Also me: "Yes, you will run later. And you will also run right now. So get up."
You get the gist. The added bonus to getting up early to run is having time for my favorite breakfast - oatmeal with blueberries and brown sugar. Delicious! Now I am energized and well fueled for my full day of traffic court.
