Sometimes I Wonder, What The Hell Am I Doing Out Here?

I really did not want to get out of bed this morning. But the alarm, and the subsequent snooze alarm, had gone off, and I was awake, and just lying there, trying to will myself back to sleep, and all the while I was thinking, just get up and run and get it over with, the hills are good for you, if you don't do it today, you won't do it... blah blah blah blah blah. Sometimes I really wish I could just shut myself up already!

So, you guessed it, I got up, had a snack, did my exercises and stretches, got myself organized and headed out. Once I got out onto the Mt. A. hill, outside the range of the street lights, it was just me, my headlamp and the thick fog and mist. Visibility was limited, and in the woods, the leaves and the rock slabs were slick and wet. Sigh. Stellar conditions for hill repeats, right?! Well, needless to say the loops were slow both on the ups and downs. I was able to finally run the road without my headlamp on the last two loops, but the light was still needed in the woods.

I willed myself up and around 7x, which isn't much, but it's better than nothing. Gotta be good mental training at least, right?

Some of the cold, dark mornings leave me wondering the same thing! We must be getting something out of it, though, or we'd just stay in bed. Right?
