My son turned 4 this week and we are having his birthday party on the weekend. There is lots to do and I just had to get a run in before the weekend. Normally I would run home from work but the husband asked that I get home as soon as possible so we could tidy up and that’s when I remembered that I have to take the cat to the Veterinarian tonight.
What’s a girl to do?
I set my alarm for 6:25 am. Husband thought I was a little nutso for doing so and I’m sure he placed a little bet to himself that I would just roll over and ignore it. But I didn’t! I had a few spoonfuls of plain yogurt and a glass of water and headed out.
I felt great for the first 10 minutes. Then I realized how tired I was and had to walk more than I normally do, but I soldiered on and finished my 5 km in a decent time.
Overall, it was really nice to get out early and get the run done. I think I may make a weekly habit of doing this early in the morning. It certainly frees up the rest of the day to do other stuff, like cleaning my house.
