Before I went to bed last night I planned on getting up early to go for a run before I start work. In an effort to limit the excuses not to go when I inevitably wake up completely unmotivated I make sure I lay my running kit out with the laces undone, water bottle filled and alarm set. When 06:00 came around I looked at the window and started my excuses not to go:
- It’s to dark
- I can go later
- It might rain
then from nowhere I climb out of bed do 20 push ups, get my kit on and get out running.
This pretty much happens every time I try an early midweek run. I am always glad I when I have done it though and it sets up my day so well.
