Now That I Have Had Coffee

I can write a coherent post. I tried this about an hour ago when I got to work and the post was starting to sound like,
I need to run and sleep and eat better.
I need to not go out much.
I like running.
So then, since that would have been lame....what to say. Well, I need to run and sleep and eat.....you get the idea.

Jason and I have decided to go back to working our really early schedule. Roughly 6:30am-2:30pm, that means getting up at 5am and leaving Chicago by 5:30am, which is totally fine because I love working in the morning before anyone is here at the lab. However it does require diligence and planning. I can't go to bed at 1am and think that I am going to get up at 5am, work for 8 hours, drive home and then get some kind of running workout in. It's just not going to happen. We have to go to bed at a reasonable time every night and it has to be the same each day. This plan ends up working out great because we are home by 4pm at the latest and then home from running by 6pm at the latest, then time to eat and get in bed. It makes things kind of "boring" I guess, but I like when all the components of my life are working like a well oiled machine.

That being said, I was up and out of bed at 5:05 and here at the lab by 6:15 this morning. All good things. The running plan of the week is 6 today, 7 tomorrow, 7 on Saturday in Fort Wayne (going to visit Jason's parents for an early Thanksgiving) and 5 on Sunday either in Fort Wayne before we leave or when we get back to Chicago, this gets us to 25 for the week which is on par for my building back up plan.

RunOn Friends.

I've tried to get up early (5 am) the past two mornings with no luck. I applaud your effort. Oh, and I'm still laughing about your incident with the BMW.

Sounds like a good plan.
