Once again, I had resoved to get up at the crack of dawn and run, and once again, I did not get up to do that. Instead, I took the advice I gave Norah at 5:15 when she appeared at our bedside: "Go back to sleep; it's still night time."
But, Mondays are an easy day for me in terms of work. I just have one afternoon class, and if I leave school right when my class gets done, I can hurry home and be there by 3:45. Which is what I did today. Jerry and the kids don't get home until 4:30, so I quick took Scooter out, then dressed in my running clothes and was back out the door at 4. Now, running at 4 pm in August in South Florida is not usually advisable, but I figured I could get 2 miles in and a quick shower before they got home, so...heat be damned!...I got out there and ran my little 2 miler.
Got home, got in the shower, and was rinsing the conditioner out of my hair when I heard them come home.
It was nice to fit it in despite skipping the morning option. Still, one of these days, I'd like to feel like I don't have to rush through a run, or squeeze it into some weird time of day. Sigh...I don't think a day like that is my near future.
Oh well, getting it done is good enough!
