Guess who ran today....

I DID!

I had my alarm set for 6:30 on my phone and I even had it set with a nice little harp ring tone. It went off (I had it in the bathroom so I'd have to walk across the room) I hit snooze and laid back in bed. I laid there debating whether or not I really wanted to run today and that's when I remembered when I started really getting into running last year I found that when I just got up and went without thinking it was SOO much easier to get it done. So, that's what I did. I shut my brain off, got dressed and went out and got it done.

Sure, it took me 55 minutes to go 4 miles, but I did it. I got my run in and I feel SOOO much better for having done it. I even switched up my route so I'd have something new to look at. I'm excited! Tomorrow I'll do 2 miles just cause I don't want to jump in too fast, but I'm feeling good about the SoJo Half at the end of September. :)

Nice little trick of putting the phone in the bathroom! I agree about just getting up without thinking then everything else will follow. Good job on getting 4 miles done!! and now you have the rest of the day knowing that you already ran!

WTG! It's always nice to get the miles in and have the rest of the day to yourself. I wish I had motivated this morning...still trying to get mine in!

Yay! How great do you feel now? I got up early too and for a second wanted to go back to bed but knew the reward would be way better than the extra hour of sleep.

Give yourself a pat on your back!
Waking up early is never easy, so it is awesome that you just got up and got the run in.
It will get easier. :)

Way to go on getting up!! It is SO HARD for me to get up and run in the morning. I'm still working on that. It is so much easier for me to run at 8:00 at night. Anyway, good for you :)
