Training for my next half-marathon is very time consuming and in November I start training for a full marathon. Training runs are getting longer and my lunch hour can no longer be used for training, since the runs now exceed 4 miles daily, so hmmmmm, creative time management is in order. I could do my runs when I get home in the evenings, but it's starting to get dark earlier and I have found that trying to rush to get a run finished is just not me, I like to take my time and I certainly can't take my time when the DH is at home hoping I will have dinner ready, lol.
Creative time management from today forward will consist of morning runs, no excuses. I actually got up, yeah (thanks SAMI for the reminder call this morning). This is a huge deal for me to give up that last hour of sleep in the mornings, but I'm determined to manage my time wisely and give 100% to my training. I started off by putting my alarm clock across the room, so I would have no choice but to get up and turn it off, I certainly don't want to wake up the entire household with that loud car horn alarm going off. I had all my gear layed out the night before, so it was out the door and on the road, only 15 minutes later than planned, but it will take some tweaking to get the schedule running smoothly.
I feel so energized today, a morning workout always makes me feel better, now anything else fitness wise today is a BONUS.
Still feeling the ulcer when running, not FUN, but I can say that at least today I feel a tad improved.
(I saw this on my FB page this morning and how appropriate. I think it was a runner's world post, not sure)
