Misty Monday

This morning I woke up to the sound of one of our cats crying for food. I scooted her out of the room and closed the door so I could go back to sleep for another hour. I was then woke by an alarm going off in our neighbourhood from a car or in someone’s house. I even had ear plugs in and could hear it. Then just as I had drifted off to a sound sleep my alarm went off on my phone. Why is it on Monday’s I could always sleep in longer than a weekend morning?

I got out of bed feeling super sleepy but was happy to go downstairs to brewed coffee. I poured Warren and I a mug full each and I started getting our lunches ready. An hour later Warren said to me “No run this morning?” I said “Yes. I am going. I am just a bit slow this morning.” Warren saying that was just the right little subtle push that I needed to move myself a little faster.

I headed upstairs to get ready and then came down to say good-bye to Warren. I had set 40 minutes on my watch and headed off. I started my Bear Mountain 10k playlist and started signing my tunes while I got my sneakers on. As I headed out the door the weather was a bit misty but it was warm. It was quite nice out actually and I liked it.

I weaved my way around the neighbourhood going here and there making a big loop. As I ran along I dodged puddles so I could try to keep my feet as dry as I could. I am not a fan of running with wet and squishy socks and sneakers. I know some of my running friends will just go through them but I will do my best to avoid them.

My run was a good one and I came home feeling energized. It was on mostly flat terrain with only a few hills so it felt almost easier after running so many hills on Saturday.

When Huli and I arrived on campus today there were some of the RRU staff all dressed in red and white for the United Way Campaign we are running at the university. I was stopped by Santa Claus and was given a Habitat Gift Card for a free coffee. It was a small gesture but perfect timing on a misty morning.

At lunch time I am headed to the strength and cardio class I love to do on Monday’s.

How did your Monday morning start? Will you avoid puddles when running?
