Good morning! I am doing up a little quickie post now since Andmo and I are leaving for our friends’ cottage immediately after work and I won’t get a chance later (no internet at the cottage, which is exactly the way it should be!!!)
Last night I decided that I wanted to run this morning. I laid out my running clothes before bed, set my alarm for 5:45 am, and went to sleep with a morning run on my mind (this usually helps me get out there). When my alarm went off this morning, however, I did not want to get out of bed. I woke up around 3am and it took me forever to fall back asleep (hate that), so I was tired and so tempted to just stay in my nice warm bed.
But somehow, I managed to drag myself out from unda the sheets and into my running clothes, and I sleepily made it out the door.
Though my mind was tired and foggy, my body felt strong! I did the same loop around my neighbourhood that I completed on Tuesday’s run, but I did it a couple of minutes faster so I tacked on another .5km at the end. My run totaled about 4.5k. Not too shabby!
It was so nice to get out this morning, and I’m so grateful I made myself do it. I felt awesome afterwards. I am discovering what a lot of runners rave on about, that running is really great “me” time, and just a really good time to think. It was nice.
I haven’t been posting my breakfast all week, because it has just looked like this.
Oats. Peanut butter. Banana.
I have been doing a terrible job at switching up my breakfasts lately and for the past week or so I’ve just been eating oatmeal every day. Next week I am making it a mission to change it up! Smoothies, bagelwiches, overnight oats…time for a change!
I am off to my organization’s boys’ rugby championship, and then girls’ soccer championship. Busy day! I have to miss lunchtime yoga today though, which I am sad about :(. But then it’s COTTAGE TIME!!!
Hope you all have a great weekend, and I’ll be back with a cottage recap on Sunday!
