Short story short: I didn't run 6 miles today.
I totally planned to. I laid out my clothes, gave myself a pep talk, and then proceeded to sleep through the whole dang thing. When my alarm rang at 6:30 I realized I had set it wrong and developed a new-found appreciation for the power of my subconcious.
So now I have to run six miles tomorrow, which will be a huge pain because I'll have to get up monster early, but whatever. It's gotta happen eventually and there is no time like tomorrow!
I'm actually really bummed. I know I needed the sleep but I was looking forward to battling it out with the pavement. But the bright side is that I have the rest of the day to anticipate my run tomorrow!
And figure out when I am going to fit in today's cardio.....hmmm....hello lunchtime elliptical!
Well, at least there is a bright side. And, its a reminder that wellness isn't a one-shot deal. Just as wellness is something that needs constant awareness, it is also a self-renewing goal. Every day is another chance to be awesome at it, and that means you never lose.
I missed the mark today but I racked up some needed sleep and feel better as a result. No worries; tomorrow you can ask me about the six miles I ran. :)
