The last two days have started with me waking up on my own... after I should have woken me up. I use my cell phone - a droid - as my alarm. It was randomly unplugged Monday morning, ran out of batteries and didn't go off. This morning I woke up on my own, just as when I should have been getting back from my six mile run.
Despite a bit of a false start to my day, I have a few things to feel good about.
2. I got around to upping my retirement contributions. After all, part of running is that whole life extension things, I guess that also means I have to make sure I have money to register for the Boston Marathon when I'm over 70 and there's a reasonable qualifying time.
3. I ran after work. I really didn't want to, and then there was the king sized pay day candy bar I ate as I was walking home that did not help. But, after some procrastination, I got out and logged six miles. I faded a bit on mile 4, but otherwise held a pretty steady pace of just over 9 minutes.
Its all about getting one step closer to your goals no matter how far off they are.
