Good Morning! How are we doing today? Good? Great? Everyone happy, healthy, feeling loved?
Remember when we talked about planning last month? Ya know when I said how sometimes planning just doesn’t seem to work. Well, lately everything has gone pretty according to plan. I like these days. Planned days make me happy. 🙂
This morning wasn’t really one of those mornings. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t a terrible morning but a few things through me off my planning game.
Like my alarm clock going off at 6:04 am and me hitting the snooze button (or so I thought) only to wake up at 6:40 am realizing I had actually hit the off button. Doh!
I threw on my running clothes I had laid out the night before (good planning strategy right there) and walked down the stairs half awake planning on pouring a cup of freshly brewed coffee that should already be made according to the plan. Except once I got down there I realized I set my programmable coffee machine to 5:47 pm instead of am. Gahhh
“Not to worry though,’ I thought, ‘it’s still 6:45 am.” With a simple press of a button I can have my coffee ready in no time, drink it and be out the door by 7:15 am. How humid could it be? I only have 7 miles planned. Easy cheesy.
While waiting for my coffee to brew I decided that since I was already pretty hungry this morning my gu chomps weren’t going to carry me through my run.
I made myself a little pre run snack:
I surprised myself at how fast I scarfed everything down. I was hungry this morning! I made it out the door at 7:05 and took off.
