The Run that turned on me

Today’s run turned on me. It turned hot too fast, it turned hard to soon and ultimately my run turned into a walk :(

I blame the fact that after I woke up I spent two hours on the computer and lagged on getting out the door. Totally my fault and it messed up my entire workout. I think I ended up doing 4 miles, maybe?

I used to be great about waking up and getting out the door within 20 minutes or so, but this past winter got me in the habit of stalling. This is setting me up for failure because I need to run early to beat the heat! I’m going to be training for a marathon through the hottest part of the summer in SoCal so I really need to start getting up and out the door at dawn again!

After I got home I quickly threw together breakfast. Since it’s Waffle Wednesday and all I made a waffle sandwich.IMG_9429

Plus fruit :)IMG_9426

But, I’m not sure if I was overly hungry to begin with or what because I was not full at all from this meal. I should have waited it out to let my food settle, but instead I had a ww roll with Pepita Butter.

I am on a mission for Dunkin Donuts iced coffee today! Get it while ya can!!

    Haha, when I first saw the post title I thought it said “The run that turned me on” and I was like, this is going to be interesting. Lol. Sorry it turned on you though! I am sooooo bad at getting up early, then when I get out of work at 5 it’s 90 degrees! Grrr. Good luck finding a routine that works! And btw, your breakfast looks gorgeous. :)

    I know how you feel in regards to the morning workouts. I used to wake myself up at 4:00 am and workout for 3 hours before I went to school. I did this for 3 days a week for over a year.

    I don’t know if I burned out or what, but I can’t even wake myself up at 8 am to get a work out in these days. It might have something to do with me being older, who knows.

    I had to read your title three times before I realized that you were saying “turned on me” instead of turned me on!” Giggle :)

    I can not imagine getting out the door after only 20 minutes! I’m still drinking my lemon water at that point. Then breakfast must come quickly, food, food, FOOD!

    I had no idea it was waffle Wednesday, but hand to the sky I have a Special K Eggo smothered with yogurt ready to go this afternoon for a snack.

    oh the notorious hot socal summers…i used to get up at 5.30am to run at 6 because it was 90+ by 8am!

    i’m sure you’ll get back into the groove once you get out there. the suns up at 5.45 anyhow!

    Don’t worry, my husband and I both had horrible runs today. I think the weather is a big factor and we are in low air quality alert here in DC metro.
