Two a Day’s and Alarm Clocks

Two a Day’s and Alarm Clocks

I’m not a morning person. I used to think I was – I don’t know why I used to think that, probably because it has awesome connotations for the kind of person you are, active and ready to fight the day? Who knows. Maybe I am a morning person and I’m just fighting it. In any case – Thursdays are typically rest days, by Outlaw standards they are completely off. I don’t like doing nothing, gotta do something. With that in mind I’m also going to miss at least two days of Outlaw this weekend, I’ll be on a plane Friday and doing a drop-in class in NY Friday night, and I have no plans to workout Saturday or Sunday. Basically today is my last day to really push myself. My plan last night (and yes I’m a planner, I always have a plan), was to do the mainsite WOD from yesterday this morning.

Run 1600 meters
Rest 3 minutes
Run 1200 meters
Rest 2 minutes
Run 800 meters
Rest 1 minute
Run 400 meters

**Update** Finished in ~19:00

If everyday looked like this – I would run a lot more often

Just running. I need work on running, I need work on endurance, and I think I can safely recover from this in time to workout again at 4:30. Makes sense in my brain. Here comes the hiccup, I set my alarm last night for 5:30, enough time to get up and run and still be productive. I woke up this morning at 7:30…I set my alarm for 5:30 PM like a champion. I was upset with myself to put it gently. Then I battled for 30 minutes what I would do to make this work, I checked out mapmyrun and decided to give it a try anyways. After a quick post of course.

Moral of the story is, plans are meant for changing – don’t get caught by them; and, alarm clocks are not foolproof if you really need to wake up for something – set two.

P.S. Feels like a dubstep morning to me…anyone else?
