Last night before bed: 7:00 is a little early. Let's go for 7:30.
4:30 (a.m., yes there are two 4:30's per day) Now that Grace has awakened me, I have an excuse to postpone my run. Woohoo!
7:00 Hmm, I wonder if there is any other time of day I can squeeze in my two runs per week? There has to be some other time ... fall back asleep.
7:30 The alarm goes off. I grab it and turn it off, so that it's now or never. I cling briefly to it, and get up.
I think I have dressed pretty warmly, until I get about a block from my house and I am still not warm. This means I do in fact have to jog instead of walking the whole way today. Shucks.
Run. Walk. Run. Walk. Walk. Walk.
I imagine a tigress chasing me so I will Run. I imagine the tigress catching me and biting my arm, or better, my leg, so I can no longer run. I am still running, though my imagination is not co-operating on the focus front. The angry tigress is now tame and catches up to me. We walk the rest of the way home side by side.
I exceeded my goal of 20 minutes of exercise by two minutes. Oh, yeah! And I felt like blogging afterward, which I think is a good sign.
