I get so mad at myself sometimes. I even call myself names, but it usually comes later in the day.
This morning, no let's go back to last night. I was in bed by 9:30 PM. This does not happen a lot, but I went to bed early foregoing watching "GoldenBoy" (yeah, I like that show). I know my wife was freaked out and wondered what I was doing. but I was tired. I had my running gear laid out, or rather gathered in the corner and my alarm was set for 5:21 AM. I set it for 5:21 so I can slap the snooze and then get up at 5:30.
I had a scheduled 7 mile run planned and I was looking forward to it.
I went to sleep fast. Then...
My alarm goes off at 5:21 AM and I slap that clock silly. I debate, like I always do, about getting my feet on the floor when I hear the faint sound of....rain. The "get up early motivation killer". It sounded so nice and steady. I think I heard it whisper my name saying, "it's OK buddy, every thing's cool man". I had the correct pillow position and the right amount of coverage from the sheets. I wasn't too hot. I wasn't too cold. It was nice. So I hit the snooze. 9 minutes later...
I heard a gentle rolling thunder in the distance. The rain was steady falling, this time I heard it whisper "You know you can't beat me, the steady soothing sound of rain, you're toast, you can make it up tomorrow"
So the next time it goes off, instead of hitting the snooze, I slide my alarm switch to alarm 2, which goes off at 6:30 AM!! It takes me longer to do this than it would have taken me to get up out f bed. You see I had to grab my cell phone so I could use it as a flashlight, and then verify I had moved the correct switch. I did not want to wake my wife up, by turning on the overhead light, but it's not like the last 30 minutes of an alarm going off would have bothered her!! And then back to bed I go.
Now late in the day I am upset with myself for giving into the sweet sound of falling rain. I had decided that tomorrow I would run in the morning and then ride at night and make it up. Now I thinking I should just switch the days and ride today, run tomorrow and get back on track! Decisions, Decisions!!!
So tell me blog world, what do you do when you miss a workout for a lame reason????
