Today I got up and ran 10 miles! Oh yeah, and I should mention that I got up at 5 am to do it!
Both are tremendous feats for me. My longest run to date and earliest run to date. I am not a morning person. I have always disliked getting up before I absolutely have to. I have always admired people that got up early and got their workouts in or things accomplished, but it wasn’t for me….but maybe that’s changing.
When summer temps and the humidity started climbing, going early became a necessity. It was not fun to run in high humidity and 95 degrees. So there’s been quite a few 6:30 am runs. And our Saturday group run is at 7:00am. But meeting at 5:30…it’s still dark!
But it was great and I’d totally do it again!
Now I’m chilling out with my new compression socks on, trying to get motivated to pack to head to the lake for the weekend. My family is all coming up for some fun in sun and good times together.
Are you a morning person? Have you always been that way or did you change at some point?
