I just had some Spaghetti Bolognese (carbs, carbs, carbs) for dinner/snack and now I’m fighting with a huge bottle of water, let’s see if it will make tonight’s running any easier. At the moment the greatest challenge is the heat: it’s just too hot outside for any kind of tough exercise. Basically, I have two options: getting up really early in the morning and go for a run, or wait until it starts to get dark. Neither option is unproblematic.
Some people find it hard to concentrate enough to read an entire book, others don’t like eating veggies. Well, one of the greatest challenges life has ever thrown at me is getting up early. I am no morning person (never have been, never will be), and since work usually starts at 4 p.m., I don’t exactly need to get up at dawn either.
Running in darkness isn’t really tempting either, mainly for safety reasons. I usually run in an area with no lights and lots of sheds, so it might not be the best of places for exercising after nightfall, unless you’re suicidal.
Any ideas"? Or do you have any suggestions on how to get out of bed early relatively painlessly?
