This morning my alarm went off at 5:45 and I got out of bed to go for a run. I put on my running clothes and put my contacts in. And then I took my contacts out, put my pjs back on, and went back to bed. Oops.
I'd like to say I have some reasonable excuse, like it was raining a torrential downpour or I was overly tired from a lack of sleep. But it was nice out. And I went to bed at 9:00 last night.
I think it comes from my attitude that my morning runs are "optional" because they are not runs on my training program. But I function so much better if I get up and exercise right away. Tomorrow I will get up early and get my swim on, and Thursday, I promise, I will do my easy morning run. So there.
