Last week, I finally acknowledged that I needed to shift my running schedule. I have to go into the office earlier than normal for a regular meeting on Thursdays, making it near impossible to run in the morning… Which is the only chance I have.
My former schedule was M-W-Th, then Saturday and Sunday. Now, it’s M-Tu-W, then Friday and Saturday. Just a small, itty-bitty one-day shift. Yesterday was my first non-running Sunday in a very long time and it felt soooooo weird. It was kind of cool because I got up leisurely and got to play with my son, who is almost three. I also felt a little lazy, like I should be out running. I totally convinced myself that I made the schedule change at the right time because there was a 10-miler on my regular trail yesterday that may have been awkward to work around. 🙂
But, then I ran this morning, which has been a regular non-run day for a pretty long time now. And, my son didn’t want to get up and then didn’t want to eat breakfast and then didn’t want to get dressed. So, maybe he is the reason my day feels out of whack, but I’m pretty sure the schedule has something to do with it. It’s just one day!
I’m looking forward to this schedule for a bit because I kind of like the idea of an easy Sunday morning with the family. My long runs have taken up a fair amount of time, so now I have Sundays to recover and to drink coffee and to play with my son… And, to convince my husband that we should go to brunch at “that cute little diner.” That is a bigger challenge, but we’ll get there! Shhh! Don’t tell him I said that. 😉
