I don’t like my alarm…so annoying. Snooze. But I roll out of bed, into my shorts and trainers, and hit the pavement. After about 3 seconds, I feel great! What a great way to wake, clear my head, plan my day. I run with good tunes in my head, a smile on my face, and appreciate my life.
It all started a few years ago, when I needed something short and sweet just in case I couldn’t get any real workout in during the day. I figured I’d at least have done something good for me. Now, I wouldn’t trade it for the world!!! I feel stronger. I’ve increased my endurance. I feel more alive throughout the day. Mentally, I am more on task. My whole day is more productive as I tend to be more energized and efficient.
Speed isn’t my thing. “Slow and steady wins the race,” is how I roll. But the benefits are wonderful. It is a whole body workout… legs, glutes, abs, back, chest, shoulders, respiratory, cardio…all good. The run also sets me up for an awesome stretch afterwards because warm muscles are stretchable without fear of tearing.
My early morning run is my sanity-feel good-prep for my day-me time. Best part of my day!
