And now, week two of Cleveland half marathon training is done.
This week, I was only sick a few days, which helped a TON. My eye infection healed, but then LM came down with a fever and likely HFM (along with teething), which is making sleep fun. I also was away for the weekend, which made the schedule change a bit – I did my long run on Friday and then got in an impromptu run on Saturday.
Saturday’s run included some great views – look at the frozen lake! It was also the first run I’ve had outside in forever so any views would’ve been great.
This week’s Tuesday Topic is are you a morning runner or an evening runner?
I’m DEFINITELY a morning runner. I can’t imagine running at night – running is how I start my day nearly every day of the week. It’s the only way I function some days! Plus, my days/nights are pretty crazy that if I ran at night, it would have to be after the kids are in bed and wouldn’t be until after 9 p.m. some nights (which would be too late for me). Here is how I make it happen:
- I sleep in my running clothes when I can. Maybe it’s gross, but it makes it so much easier to get out and run! And when I don’t, I make sure my clothes are set out and ready to go.
- I figure out my running route and plan before I go to bed. I don’t want to have to think in the morning.
- I set multiple alarms. I don’t always wake up with one alarm.
Some questions for you:
- Are you a morning or evening runner?
- Do you run on vacation?

Figuring out a running route is a great tip too. There’s nothing worse than trying to figure out a route as you’re running.
Well sleeping in your running clothes make sense. Definitely save a lot of time.
I never thought I would need a second alarm but this morning my alarm was going off for 8 minutes before I finally heard it. I took some cold medicine the night before so I am sure that knocked me out.
How do you make your image of your runs for the week?
I use Canva to make it!
So glad that you are feeling better and able to get all of your runs in! So not a morning runner over here. Have a great week
