Oops

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.

AHHHH i did this kind of this morning too. woke up but just didn't go because i know i could go later. uggg... i will be paying for it when its hot - maybe that will remind me to get out of bed :)

I would LOVE to get in the habit of an occassional morning run, but like you it would be 'optional' and I know it would be hard to drag myself out of bed!

Kayla said...

This sounds like something I would do. I am the farthest thing from a morning person, so if I try to plan a morning run..it usually doesn't happen

DRog said...

Dont miss your scheduled runs!!! (didnt you tell us to get on you a while back? haha) okay optional is rational...get that swim on! lol

LOL! I have done this everything I attempt to get out for an early morning run!
Maybe like Aron said, reminding yourself how hot it will be later will get you/me up the next time!

Morning runs are the best, so quiet and peaceful and then you have all day to do whatever else you wanted to do.

So there! Ha ha, you will get up tomorrow morning:) I am planning on getting up early tomorrow too! We will have to see what happens:)

That's funny! I have had a few mornings like that, and I actually am I morning person. I prefer to run/workout in the morning, just to get it done before the rest of my life takes over. Good luck next time!:)

Christine said...

Hahahaha you made me laugh! I'm glad that is not only happening to me!!

I was just watching the 9 o'clock news. Sounds like there may be storms tomorrow morning, the swim may not happen...

Those early mornings are hard, I have found that I do a little better if I can go even 1/2 to 1 hour later.

Good Luck!

If I had a dollar for every time I've done that....well, let's say I wouldn't be working right now. Ha. We all deserve those days now and then. Hope you enjoyed the extra rest :)!

Wow contacts in and everything?

joyRuN said...

Oh how many times I've blown off a morning run. Usually I don't even make it out of bed.

Anne said...

Haha! Next time...just stay in bed...less trouble ;) Hope your swim went well this morning.
I really want to do more morning runs...it's SOOOOO hard!

Tish said...

So funny. I wrote about the very same topic today. I think you're okay, having skipped an "optional" run. I've got to get some in that category, I never thought about calling some of them "optional!" LOL

Jess said...

Morning running is ROUGH, but once I can actually get out of bed, I'm usually okay, but the getting out of bed is harder than it seems like it will be.

the dawn said...

I totally support your decision! how long before you took the contacts back out? if i spend too long with my eyes open i know there's no use going back to bed...hope you got some good rest cause you deserve it!

I want to run in the morning, but I just can't make myself do it. I like sleep way too much.
