It’s fall now and the cool breeze starts creeping into our daily lives. Although having some chilly weather once in a while is nice compare to sweating your butt off all the time during the summer, I realized how much I struggle with colder weather recently.
I have a set schedule for everyday, and certain times I wake up to kickoff my day. Since I wake up at 7:30 to work out on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sundays, I have begun to be more aware of the struggle of waking up as the mornings become chillier every week as September comes to a close.
Is this post random? Yes. Is it basically of a rant of how much I dislike the cold weather? Yes. And I apologize, but I need to get it out of my system to get over it.
In the mornings as my cellphone rings the alarm, I am becoming more comfortable with the bed and how warm and cozy it is in contrast to the 45 degrees Fahrenheit that lingers outside, waiting for my arrival for my morning runs. And yes I know what you’re thinking… “just run later in the day when it becomes warmer!” And I answer back, “it’s not the same.” Working out in the mornings allow me to wake up and meditate on the checklist of to-do list in my head, as well as giving me a refreshed feeling that I don’t get if I run in the afternoons or at night.
I know most people who work out will agree with me when I say getting up and actually getting dressed and heading out to work out is actually a more struggle than actually working out. But hang in there guys. The weather won’t change for us so we just have to fight it back and get out butts off the beds and just do it.
