Well, I’m still in a running funk. BUT my mileage is up simply because I’m part of a step challenge at work that goes for another week. So, I kicked my running into gear on Wednesday (the day the challenge started), and have been running each day since. These week I almost got in 30 miles.
It’s still be hard waking up early to go run. The mornings are so dark and getting chilly – and my bed is sooo warm. I don’t remember feeling this way last winter/fall!
This week’s running highlight:
Saturday, B and me took FW on a stroller run! We went out with our niece for a few miles around a nearby lake. It was a fun time and first time I’d run with B in forever!
Some questions for you:
- Tips for getting out of bed early? I’m definitely a morning worker-outer, but need some help!
- What are you looking forward to most this week?
Linking up with My No-Guilt Life, Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and MCM Mama Runs!

When I am in challenges with friends it always makes me motivated to want to get more steps in than I usually do. Speaking about steps, did you find a Garmin yet? If you did lets follow each other. My name is Lacey02.
Not yet! I am still debating which one to get .. I keep hearing good things about the Fenix but I may wait until my birthday/the holidays to ask for it.
I wake up between 3:30/45 AM three times a week to run. My only advice is to go to bed early, haha. I know that sounds lame, but I make it a point to be in bed by 9, earlier if I can make it happen. I know it’s worth it because then I have the whole afternoon with Kara and keep that in mind when I don’t want to get up ❤
That’s pretty good motivation! I don’t get home until after 6 some days, and FW goes to bed between 7:30-8 so if I worked out at night, I’d have to do it then — and that ain’t happening! I’m too pooped by 8 to workout, and 6-8 is my time with FW so I get it 🙂
I challenged myself to walk at least 10,000 steps per day in November. I am helping that will keep me motivated all month. My mom is joining me as well.
You can do it! That’s a great goal and hopefully attainable!
I am absolutely not a morning runner LOL. I only run before 10am if I am forced to.
This week my boys have two days off of school, so I’m really enjoying the extra sleep I’ve gotten.
Running is an awesome way to rock a step challenge, just saying. Because I have dogs that get up by 5 am and usually earlier, I have no choice but to get up. When my kids were babies, I used to get on the treadmill before they woke up because that was really the only time I could. I get what you’re saying about the cold/dark. It’s not easy.
