I say this all the time, but I think it bares worth repeating: working out is good for my body, great for my heart, and amazing for my mental health.
It took everything in me to get out of bed at 5:30 this morning. I kept telling myself that I’d just run at night. Then I gave I myself a good talking to and reminded myself that M has her first game back today (!!!) I have laundry to do, and also need to run to Walmart for essentials so it can’t be put off. That got my butt up outta bed.
30 minutes and 3.2 miles later and here I sit, a sweaty puddle mess, but as happy as can be.
With as much as we’ve got going on lately and as much as is going on at school, I need those 30 minutes of silence and clarity in the morning. With M back in soccer and Caleb playing in 2 leagues, my afternoons have returned to their possession. This moves cleaning and other stuff to late late evenings/nights and weekends and there goes my sanity.
So yeah, early morning workouts it is. Plus it’ll help me prepare for race day (next Saturday!!!) since that’ll be in the morning too. So excited!!!
