This getting up early to beat the heat thing is getting really old really fast. I am not a morning person, nor have I ever been one. Staying in bed, to me, almost always beats out anything going on…unless it is work or I am flying out somewhere that morning. I am really realllllly good at coming up with a plan of how I will do it later, or do it tomorrow, and turning off my alarm.
I did this three times this past weekend, and now I feel like a huge loser. I know I’m not really a loser, duh, but I am frustrated with myself. I feel like missing important training runs has put me behind. My coach, Susan, says I AM NOT BEHIND! So that makes me feel better! I still need to figure out what the hell my problem is! Don’t get me wrong, I have been getting up early to run a lot; but sometimes, I go through periods of time where it is just a lot harder for me. I yet again proved to myself today that I do not do well running in the heat. Even when it is not as hot as usual for 8am in July, it is still too hot for me.
Maybe I need to drink more coffee in the morning…
Unfortunately, coffee + water + running = stopping to pop a squat behind any large object way too many times during my run! He’s cute, though, isn’t he!? On the other hand, coffee after a run is the best thing ever!
So what advice do all of you morning people out there have for me?? Lay it all out for me! I’ll take all of the advice I can get!
Going to bed so I can hopefully drag my ass out of bed for track tomorrow.
