Runnin’ in the A.M.

Good morning!  I am doing up a little quickie post now since Andmo and I are leaving for our friends’ cottage immediately after work and I won’t get a chance later (no internet at the cottage, which is exactly the way it should be!!!)

Last night I decided that I wanted to run this morning.  I laid out my running clothes before bed, set my alarm for 5:45 am, and went to sleep with a morning run on my mind (this usually helps me get out there).  When my alarm went off this morning, however, I did not want to get out of bed.  I woke up around 3am and it took me forever to fall back asleep (hate that), so I was tired and so tempted to just stay in my nice warm bed.

But somehow, I managed to drag myself out from unda the sheets and into my running clothes, and I sleepily made it out the door.

Beautiful Morning!

Though my mind was tired and foggy, my body felt strong!  I did the same loop around my neighbourhood that I completed on Tuesday’s run, but I did it a couple of minutes faster so I tacked on another .5km at the end.  My run totaled about 4.5k.  Not too shabby!

It was so nice to get out this morning, and I’m so grateful I made myself do it.  I felt awesome afterwards.  I am discovering what a lot of runners rave on about, that running is really great “me” time, and just a really good time to think.  It was nice.

Hi. I'm a Schweaty Tool

I also updated some new beats to my playlist page last week, so check it out if you haven’t already!  There’s some good ones on there.

I haven’t been posting my breakfast all week, because it has just looked like this.

Breakfast BFF

Oats.  Peanut butter.  Banana.

I have been doing a terrible job at switching up my breakfasts lately and for the past week or so I’ve just been eating oatmeal every day.  Next week I am making it a mission to change it up!  Smoothies, bagelwiches, overnight oats…time for a change!

I am off to my organization’s boys’ rugby championship, and then girls’ soccer championship.  Busy day!  I have to miss lunchtime yoga today though, which I am sad about :(.  But then it’s COTTAGE TIME!!!

Hope you all have a great weekend, and I’ll be back with a cottage recap on Sunday!

  1. I attempted overnight oats and they tasted so bland this morning. If you have a good recipe, I clearly need it! lol. And nothing wrong with oatmeal + PB everyday 😉 Where’s the cottage at? I lurveeee northern Ontario & the fact that it’s so secluded with clean air. No internet actually feels nice there. Have fun this weekend! =)

    • I do have a good one! It’s in the Breakfast section of my recipe page. It’s pretty yummy, I think it’s the vanilla that makes it so good.
      It’s near Bancroft, and meee tooo. Northern Ontario is the best! I would love to live there all summa.

  2. You are SUCH a champ. I have yet to tackle the morning run, but I think I may dabble in the idea when it gets super hot this summa. 🙂 I suck at everything in the morning, so it may not be my best idea ever.

  3. Way to go!! That’s how you do it. Once you get going, you are set. So proud of you!!
