This morning I had a hard time getting out of bed when the alarm went off at 5.  Its always hard to get up to run when you just ran 12 hours earlier.  The thing about Tuesdays and Thursdays right now are those are the 2 days I am consistently doing hot yoga...and I don't always make it up on those mornings to run...and I dont want to miss my yoga to run after work...and honestly to run before yoga is do-able (done it once; after a half marathon relay but it was about 4 hours later, not immediately after.  And I dont particularly like going to the 6:15 class because then I dont get home until after 8pm)...So my only time to run is before work. 
I have to be better at getting up and getting 3-4 miles in before work on yoga days...so that was my motivation this morning...just get.  out.  the.  door.


This is what I equate to the pain I had in my lower abdomen this morning...
And this morning I almost bagged it.  I am a bit more 'tired' this week (TOM)...and I was having excruciating cramps this morning (sorry boys); and it hurt with every step I took out on that pavement.   I even had to walk a time or two because it was hurting something awful and I just felt like I had no energy whatsoever.  I packed it in just past 2 miles.  Thankfully where I live I am able to deduct or add on mileage with little to no thought whatsoever.

The 'win' today comes from just managing to get out the door, short mileage or no.  I am hoping that hot yoga tonight will make me feel like new again!

I almost keeled over in laughter at the comparison to that photo from Aliens.

You are awesome! Way to get out there and get going even when you definitely didn't feel like it! Great job! :0)

You got out the door, millions stayed in bed today and did not exercise. Win
