I hate running in the mornings.
Every morning I get up decide I'm not going to run. Every morning (planned rest days excluded) I somehow make it out the door for just a few miles. Every morning those few miles somehow turn into the workout I'd planned in the first place. And every morning I come back feeling better.
I was reminded of this during my interval session yesterday. I was feeling generally blah when I woke up and didn't feel like running at all. So I told my wife I was going to go for a short 4 miler just to keep myself loose. After the first two miles, I found myself cruising along right next to my interval spot and figured, what the heck, I'll run an interval or two.
And then I not only ended up doing the full interval workout, I did it faster than I've ever done it before. And I felt great when I got home.
A journalist actually contacted me recently for a story he's doing about running the morning. I have no idea if anything I say will appear in the publication, but if it does I'll link to it here.
