Today I did something very out of the ordinary – I got up at 5:45am and did my run before work and even had time to foam roll, and blog after. I’m so not a morning person, so this is one of my most impressive moments.
So how did it go? It actually went ok, my splits weren’t impressive but they weren’t bad either – basically what I like my average 3 mile run to look like when I don’t have any specific goals in mind. It was sort of nice to be out there on the roads/sidewalks without having cars flying by and tons of pedestrians in my way. Sure it was early and I was tired, but I’m sort of always tired so it didn’t feel much different.
I had a flash back of waking up in the summers to go to swim practice before swim coaching and life guarding. Do you know what that is like? Looking back, I have no idea how I did that and survived. I have no idea why I even did it… A sprinkler hit me, and I felt like I was standing right next to a pool again dreading having to jump in at 5:45am.
I might be doing this more often!
