Do you ever have those mornings when the alarm clock goes off and you just wish you didn’t have to get out of the bed to go workout? Well, that was definitely me this morning. I did not want to meet the ladies for hill repeats even though I lead the Wednesday morning session.
The alarm clock started going off at 4:26 a.m. and then every 9 minutes until I finally got out of the bed at 4:44 a.m. We meet at 5 a.m., so it doesn’t give me much time to spare. Although I have two things working in my favor: 1. On Tuesday nights, I pretty much sleep in my workout clothes so it’s easy when I have to drag myself out of bed and 2. the meetup spot is about 5 minutes from my house.
This morning we did 5 double hills. We run from the base of the hill up to the first light you can see in the pic above, jog or walk back down and then all the way up the hill to the street light that is barely visible in this pic. That is what I call a set of one. Yes, we are up to five of them as of this week. The humidity doesn’t help, but we get it done.
All in all, we got them with a 1 mile warm up and then a 1/2 mile cool down.
I know this will pay off, but when that alarm clock goes off that is not what I am thinking. I’m glad I have a group of ladies to meet in the morning because if I didn’t, I am not sure I would be getting up.
