So last week I struggled with achey shins and calfs, but struggle on I did. Then on Sunday I went for my 1st afternoon run, and it was super, no aches. I felt refreshed and relaxed. It wasn't the fasted I'd ever run, but after the aches last week I was in no mood to push it.
Roll on two days and I needed to get up at 6am to do my usual midweek runs. I went to bed really looking forward to a ache free run in the morning. I even had a new route planned out with a couple of hills. Then the alarm went off, and I just rolled over and ignored it. No run for me this morning. The worst bit is I know if I'd just pushed myself out of bed and got out there I would have been fine. Instead I feel really crappy sitting here knowing I might not get a chance at all today because I was so lazy.
How do you other early morning runners get yourself out the door on these dark and dismal mornings?
