The theme for this week’s running post “Fitting it in.”
Some weeks, running is harder than others to fit in. Work has been really busy these days, and I’ve been up late working nearly every night. So, waking up at 5 a.m. to run before work has been harder and harder. I was also on a work trip this week, which meant not only working late and not being home, but getting up even earlier if I wanted to run (disclaimer- I did one morning, I didn’t the next). And if I do run, I often only have 30-40 minutes, so I’m not getting in the mileage I’d like.
So, it’s getting harder and harder to find time to run. And instead of getting down on myself, I’m going to look at the positive:
- I still ran 5 days this week.
- I ran outside 4 of those 5 days
Am I making excuses? Yes, somewhat. Was this week the worst week I’ve had in running in history? Hardly. But the lack of sleep is taking its toll, and I need to do something to get more sleep so that I feel not only good to run in the AM, but also whole during the day!
Some questions for you:
- What does a “good” running week look like to you?
- How early do you wake up to run?
