"Yes dear. Go back to sleep!" was my reply to my husband this morning when I got up to go out for a run. Being very new to running (this is only my 3rd day) I don't think he quite believed me when I said I was going to go out in the mornings before the routine of breakfast, school runs & work began. But it's either 6am or 8.30pm when my working day is done, we've been fed & watered, homework is done & my youngest is in bed and, quite frankly, I'm very much a lark, and very much not an owl!!
So 6am runs it is and I have to say, it really set me up for the day. I was only out for just over 20 minutes, but I returned feeling awake, invigorated and ready to face the day. We all got out the house on time (a minor miracle on any day!) and despite the fact that I spend all day inside, stuck behind a desk, I had at least had some fresh air and "me time" (another miracle!).
I'm very much looking forward to my next early morning run - 6am will now be my favourite time of day!
