5k My Way -- Day 10 -- Do it before the sun rises

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Get that morning workout in before the sun rises, and you mind may just not catch on to what your body is up to. At least, that's the way it worked for me this morning. Woke up slow, and the first real sign that I was at it was the cold air in my face as I went out the door, followed by J's big grin. God bless him. Anyone who can smile that big at 5:15 deserves a blessing, 'cause he certainly is one.

Today's stats. 29 and Cloudy with a little bit of ice in the curb cutouts from yesterday's snow melt. Poor planning when they installed them, I think. Walked .7 miles in 13:45. Right about on pace and it's Wednesday.

There is one minor negative to all this early morning stuff for me. It's followed by a 75 minute commute to work. By that time, my knees were complaining loudly about it. Fortunately, work was busy and gave me lots of opportunity to stretch them out. Plus, I get to do it all again tomorrow. How good can life get? emoticon

Tip of the day: Don't drink all of your fruits and vegetables. It may be tasty and convenient, but eating them is more satisfying and will stick with you longer.
