My consistency with working out over the last week sort of sucked. Here's why... I'd get halfway through a living room workout and Alice would start to crank or would wake up from her nap. Or we'd be out for a run and Alice would totally melt down while in the stroller, putting an end to my run. After four days of not working out and my emotional mood as a result, I decided to change things up and work out first thing in the morning. While Alice is still asleep. Before my husband leaves for work.
Just get it done.
So yesterday I woke up at 5AM (!!) to get a quick run and shower in before my husband left for work at 6:30AM. Oh boy. I was a groggy mess when my alarm went off. But, whatever. I grabbed my pile of clothes that I had laid out the night before, guzzled some juice, and headed out the door.
I am so glad I did. It was gorgeous! And I arrived home as a happy mommy and was greeted by a smiley baby. Perfect.
And then, of course, I took an afternoon nap.
When you are out for a run or walk, do you nod or say Good morning! or Hello! to other runners/walkers? Maybe it's an East coast thing, but NOBODY says Hello! or Good morning! back to me here. In Utah, everyone does! So even though no one responds, I say it anyway. I mean it's 5AM. You're up. I'm up. Obviously we are either super crazy or super dedicated. Let's at least acknowledge this with a friendly nod!
Strava Stats: Yesterday = 4 miles/34 minutes. I am ranked third on one of the segments of this run with an 8:25 min/mile. The chick in first is at a 7:52 min/mile. Dude. I am totally coming for you and your first place title, chick! Today = Pure Barre. Feel the burn.
