Heart rate training day 8: timing is everything…

I didn’t run this morning. I thought about it when I woke up and decided that as it looked like it was going to be a nice day and as I was feeling tired that I should just wait until lunch time and run then.

I spent my morning sorta waiting about to run… not that I didn’t get anything else done but it meant that I was thinking about the need to get out more than usual.

When I did run it was nice to be out in the warm and the sun but the entire thing was a bit much of an event and so a lesson learned.

Set aside time each day, if you can, and I think most people can… perhaps not if you’re working shifts, and always exercise at the same time. Start building a habit and then there’s more chance of keeping your exercise in the background of your mind and you’ll just get it done and move on.

I think that for me that time is early morning, first thing I do… ugh.

Now, if I have that time set aside each morning that I’m running what should I do with the same time slot on rest days? Go for a walk? Write? Stretch? Sleep in? I get to find out tomorrow.
