For those of you reading this who don’t run the answer will be insane, because going for a run is always insane, but for those of you who like to dabble then please read on and let me know if I am as insane as I think I am.
Most of you know that I run, quite a lot. Some of you will know that I have recently began to not only record my mileage but also my workouts here. I have, therefore just added a whole lot of pressure onto myself (more than just what is in my brain!). Wednesday, (yesterday) is one of my run days, except that due to child illness I was unable to go (that and I was shattered!) I even sent my apologies to a meeting I should have attended.
Normally this would not have been a problem, I would simply have gone out on Thursday evening instead. Fine except that I would not be able to without leaving the children home alone as Hubby is away.
Being the responsible adult that I am this was not going to be possible. That left two options: Not run for 2 days or get up early…. When my son came into me at 6.30am this morning instead of letting him in and dozing off again I jumped out of bed. 10minutes later I was out of the door and literally stumbling down the road. I soon remembered why I do not do this on a regular basis.
Reasons I do not run first thing in the morning:
1. My brain and legs do not have time to link up properly.
2. I have no fuel.
3. I am slightly dehydrated.
4. My muscles are stiff.
5. I do not run very fast.
Need anymore reasons? I did however feel better for doing it.
Over to you:
So where do you stand on this question?
Do you think that I am insane or would you have done the same thing? Would you have done this but made some changes? Please let me know. I need to know if I am certifiable or not!
