Some days I just want to sleep in. Is that too much to ask?
This morning my Rucksack Friday group had to cancel our workout. Everyone was tied up and busy. So, I should have been able to sleep in an extra hour.
I didn’t get the cancellation text until I was already up. Instead of tossing and turning in the bed, I went down to the couch. I was thinking this might also motivate me to still get up early and run.
Just as I was drifting back into a nice, deep sleep, the kids start banging around. At 5:30am. Seriously?!
You know what? It was the perfect morning for a run.
Fall is nice, because it stays dark so late in the morning. About halfway through my run I can see all the stars. Beautiful!
There are no streetlights in that stretch, so it feels like I’m gliding through outer space. Suddenly, I’m a solo space adventurer boldly going where…
Well, maybe not that dramatic!
Suffice to say, I had a great time. That’s how I think exercising should always go. I should get done and feel energized and motivated to tackle the challenges of my day.
Thanks to my “accountability group” I was able to enjoy a fun workout this morning.
Now, if only I could figure out how to get them to sleep in on Saturday morning…
