I am the queen of sleeping in. Pre-real world, I could sleep until 2 p.m. easy. Even though now during the workweek I wake up at 6 a.m. , on the weekends I could sleep forever. Usually I am awoken around 9 or 10 by Parko kisses or Kevin, who are both awful at sleeping in.
I just never got bit by that “get-up-at-the-crack-of-dawn-and-start-your-day” bug, even though it would make my weekends way more productive. This contributes to why I work out after work as well.
This morning I decided to break that cycle. I have a busy Sunday planned with a trip to the Farmer’s Market, groceries, laundry and attempt number two at attending a local food truck bazaar.
I woke up at 7 a.m. for my Sunday workout and decided to take advantage of the time by going for a run outside.
Due to the Florida summer season lasting eight months, I can’t remember the last time I did a run off the treadmill and it felt really great. I need to learn how to pace myself better, but it felt nice to have the scenery change and not to be in a crowded, stuffy gym.
I got home before I’d normally even be awake, and even though I realize hundreds of people run every morning, I felt really proud of myself. I felt like the guy in the Gatorade G Series commercial (which features fellow Gator Ryan Lochte).
Now I’m tackling laundry before heading to the Farmer’s Market. Happy Sunday!
What time do you usually wake up when you don’t have work or school? When do you typically work out on those days? I’m definitely not committing to not sleeping in next weekend, but feel free to send some wake-up motivation my way!
P.S. I have added an index page (link above the banner). It has a list of all my restaurant reviews, recipes, travels and event recaps. Check it out if you’re looking for dinner inspiration!
