My little girl is almost 3 years old.. so except for one or two nights it has been 3 years since decent sleep! Either I have to get up several (7 or more) times, or she wakes up deciding she's had enough at around 12 or 1, and it takes me a couple of hours to get her back to sleep.
I find the best time for me to go running is early in the morning, before breakfast. But on nights that she has been particularly difficult, I can really feel the difference and it feels as if I am sleep walking through the first part and just praying away the second half!
I have tried to do the runs other times of the day, but it just doesn't seem to work for me. My belly does not like to be shaken about once it had something in it, and after a day in the office my body just laughs at my head when thinking of going for a run.
So.. I reckon once sleep returns (it does, doesn't it??) I should be a super runner! If I can do half an hour when my brain still reckon it's on the pillow, an hour's run when I am fully rested and refreshed will be a doddle...
So I'm off to search for a 5k to 10k program. You can always dream... (interrupted).
