i have never been one to swap time in bed for working out and/or running in the morning. ever. but last night i decided this morning was the morning [i have plans tonite and it’s a run day] i would set my alarm + get up. and i did!
alarm was set at 6am, and i was awake + raring to go at 5:55am. so i got up, put on my already-laid-out running clothes, and drove over to the duke wall. [it’s well-lit and there are always people running] the temperature was perfect, and the minute my feet hit the trail i felt like i was running on sunshine: my mind was clear, my body felt light, it just felt good.
i had enough time to go home and shower after my run, grab a bite to eat, and even made it to work early. [talk about feelin’ like a million bucks]
and while i realize this feeling will wear off over time, i feel like today was a turning point. that i can get up and run before work, i just have to stay disciplined + stay motivated … and do it.
