Mondays can be a tough call , and since the clocks went forward I have been meaning to make myself get up early enough to go running before work. But with no specific challenge to follow, and after a weekend of running it always seems just too much effort.
By way of bargaining with myself I decided I would set my alarm and go out for just 20 minutes and see how it went. Even as the clock whirred to 6am, I was doing trade offs and downsizing my effort from 20 minutes to 1 mile, then thinking no maybe just do something after work ….
Despite my early morning lack of co- ordination – I got out the door at 6.30 to be greeted by birdsong and a lovely fresh temperature. Was worth the effort, but I still find it a tough ask running so early in the morning.
