The struggle is real
Happy Monday!! Today is a real struggle Monday.
I feel like there is a certain stigma with most runners to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to get a run in for the day, especially during training. I, like a lot of others, work a full time job and sometimes don’t feel like waking up 2 hours before my busy day starts to go run.
All of my life I have been that person who loved waking up early for runs- the quiet, crisp, clean air always made my day a little better. Lately however I have fallen off of this ban wagon and can’t seem to get back on it. I pack clothes to run over lunch (even though I often work through lunch) and by the end of the day I’m tired or know the workout will be sub par. So I tell myself tomorrow, tomorrow will be the day my alarm goes off and I won’t hit snooze. I don’t even have children so I’m not sure how some people make everything fit into a 24 hour day! I know the answer is to wake up earlier, but sometimes the sleep just takes priority.
I work emergency shift tonight so all bets are off with waking up in the morning for a run/workout, but maybe Wednesday. Wednesday will be the day!
Does anyone else feel this way about workouts?!!
(Picture fom an AM run I managed to wake up for. Worth it)
