Friday morning I woke up and headed out the door. My training for this 10K commenced on Friday morning.
At first I panicked about the training schedule. One one hand I just cancelled my gym membership. So if it rains I'm up the creek. YIKES. And secondly, I have other obligations and desires that I have to work around. I have made the commitment to get up super early to complete my runs if need be. I am GOING TO DO THIS! I will stick to the schedule. What's a little sleep. Satisfaction is more important, on so many different levels! And being honest...I an get those runs in after work too. It's not the end of the world.
So this morning I got up. I KNEW I had a three mile run on the schedule. I dressed for it...and then procrastinated. Afterall I had all day! Well, almost all day. Our refrigerator went belly up and the new one was to be delivered between 3 and 5 in the afternoon. I didn't want to cut it too close so at 11 I headed out knowing it was 'now or never' and never was not an option. I got myself laced up and walked out the door. And....
Are you serious??????
Not a problem. I went back in and threw my phone in a ziploc bag ...I call it my i-baggy (I don't have a water proof case...but I may have to invest when I get my new phone). I went out. The drizzle stopped so I was fine anyway.
I got about 1.5 miles into run and my phone rang. I didn't recognize the number but answered it. It was the delivery guys letting me know that they would be at my house in 30 minutes. Uhhhhhhhhhh I had 1.5 miles to run to get to my car and then a short drive to get home. I booked it.....well as much as a turtle slogging through peanut butter can book it! And yes, I made it!!!!!!! A little red in the face, but I made it!
