Happy Hump-Day! Mine got off to a good start by heading out the door at a quarter after 5 to get my scheduled 7 miles done before work this morning. Finished in 1:14 too-which I was pleased with. Breaks down to 10:57 min per mile, but Carl ran the first 3 with me & we had to stop to walk up a “steep” hill for a little bit 🙂 He’s not quite used to the hilly-ness of Bama like I have been forced to accept throughout the past couple of months. I actually run faster up-hill because I know there’s always a down-hill or flatter part after; like it’s my reward for pushing through it!
I think I am FINALLY getting accustomed to waking up at 5AM & getting a move on. I hate getting up early, but I know it will be too hot after work & I’ll be worn out too so might as well get it done before. Makes the day seem longer too, which is nice at times. By the time I get home & have eaten dinner, I feel like my morning run was already ‘yesterday’ because I don’t have to rush to get changed, run, fix dinner, shower & then hit the hay. I actually get to enjoy my evenings-even though I’m in bed by 8 most nights 😉
Left my sleeping beauty in bed still sawing logs when I left at 5:15, but came back to a playful little pup. So we played for a little bit while I attempted to put on my makeup. She wears out easy though…The down side of getting up at 5AM & running 7 miles: my eyes are burning & I’m yawning like crazy & it’s only 9:40!
