For some reason, I've lost some functions on my blog editor, I can't put up photos anymore. Bummer!
I got tired of feeling tired and lethargic, so I got up earlier to run this morning. When I recall those glorious days where I participated in the major running events, I wish I were fit and energetic again.
Honestly, it is hard to sneak in even that 30 minutes for a run everyday. I got home at 4pm yesterday and was still in my working attire, shoving soiled clothes into the washer at 9.30pm. Somehow, there's always something more pressing to do at home.
After going through my daily schedule a million times, I realise the only way out is to wake up at 5am to go for a quick jog around the neighbourhood.
Honestly, it can be quite scary running alone when the streets are so quiet and dark. It's something I have to get used to. I'll stick to the brightly lit areas instead of the quiet running paths along the canal. Good thing is, the morning air is cool and fresh.
Rusty was surprised I left the house without him and was waiting by the door when I returned. Walking him around the estate after my run gave me an opportunity to cool down before I took a shower and get the boys ready for school.
I must say the morning jog was rejuvenating. I do miss that adrenalin rush and profuse sweating after a good run. Walking the dog, no matter how far we go, can never give me the same rush.
Maybe it's because I'm enthusiastic to start exercising again, I had no trouble getting out of bed this morning. I'm not sure how long this new found passion will last. It's important for me to go to bed early so I don't lose out on precious sleep.
