Early Mornings

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have switched to early morning running.  I was afraid that it was going to be really hard to make myself get up, but I am actually really enjoying it.  I get up a little before 5:30am and nurse Leona then we bundle up and head out into the early morning world.  I enjoy it, because the sun is just starting to come up, there aren't many people (sometimes any people) out & about.  Also, my days have been running (ha ha no pun intended) more smoothly because I get my run in, get showered and working on breakfast usually before anyone else is even up...  Whereas before, it was a good day if I made breakfast (gotta love cold cereal), got a run in or even showered before Emme was out of school at noon.  I thought at first I would have lots of excuses to stay in bed, but on mornings that I am really tired, I tell myself that maybe I will get the opportunity for a nap in the afternoon (ha ha ha).  So far, I have only been doing it for two weeks, but it's become enough of a habit that Noni and I are pretty much programmed to wake at 5:30 even on our days off...

As for Leona, she doesn't seem to complain about getting up so early.  Usually within a block or so from our house she's already sung herself back to sleep.

Sometimes, she will even serenade me....


(The snoring she gets from her daddy!)

I've tried to tell myself that I can do morning workouts but they only seem to last for a day or two...pretty sad. That's good that you have more self control and will power than me.
