It’s been HOT here in Southern California this week! I just couldn’t deal with another run in 90+ degree weather, so I decided that this morning I’d wake up and get out early (during the week I typically run after I bring my kids to school, so around 8:45). The thing is, my husband had to leave by 5:30 this morning, which meant that I’d have to be back before that.
I had a 6 mile progression run to do, so I figured I’d leave the house by 4:15, which would give me plenty of time. That meant waking up at 3:45. I see plenty of runners on Instagram getting up and running at that time, but it’s usually for a long run. I’m not sure what it says about me, that I woke up and ran at that time for a 6 miles. Dedicated? Awesome? Insane?
While it definitely wasn’t my best run (it was my slowest progression run ever), I’m still glad I got up early to run, since it’s pretty gross outside today.
Do you ever do things that make non-runners think you’re crazy?
