I knew today was going to be hectic, so instead of missing two days of running I decided the best plan was for me the get up and get it done before work. 4:50 in the morning and I hit the snooze for another fifteen minutes, but at 5:10 I pulled it together and got the gear on.
Running in the morning is pretty awesome, there is hardly any traffic so all the lights turn pretty fast and because I just got done being lazy and sleeping I was pretty well rested. Got my seven miles done in 59 min. Got back, took a shower, and then biked five miles to work. I wanted to put a facebook status reading “ran 7 miles, took a shower, and biked five miles before 7am”, but then I realized that I didn’t want to be that guy who posts stuff like that on his wall and makes you feel bad, because I have read stuff like that on FB and thought the same thing.
The best part of today was sticking to the plan and getting the run done. I think back to the old Nathaniel and he would have skipped the run, and most likely found a way not to ride to work.
Just trying to stick to the plan, one day at a time.
