Okay friends, it's rally time. And I need your help.
With an ever-increasing workload, it's becoming imperative for me to start getting some runs in before work. Heck, before the sun comes up, for that matter. And I'm struggling with it. Weather here right now is NUTS, and once again I found myself this morning hitting the snooze what seemed like 25 times, then finally waking up, only to check my Google Reader (seriously, people--37 posts ALREADY?!) and drink some coffee.
Parsenn has been zero help in this matter, also. I was hoping my dog would have some early morning CARPE DIEM qualities and be excited for a morning run. Not so much. I am starting to believe he has a little bit of "cat" in him, in addition to the several other breeds evident in my dear little "Standard American Mix" doggy. The guy is a sack of potatoes on his bed in the mornings. Zero energy boost from him.
I spent a bit of yesterday afternoon planning my training for Chippewa and Grandma's, and that was pretty fun. But does it really make any sense at all to be planning on doing a 5 mile tempo run on a Monday in early June and then skipping a run this morning?
This weekend I did snowshoe for 2 hours and developed a decent case of the DOMS (Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness) which was great, but still, I need to get this morning running thing going. And that's where you come in. Any tips?
