*Warning* Battery power running low...

Did not want to get up this morning and at 5.20am it was sooo tempting to just turn off the alarm, turn over and go back to sleep. SmileyCentral.comBut I didn't - dragged myself out of bed, got dressed, had a coffee and headed out the door for an interval run, convincing myself that it would get better.

Session - interval run: 6 x 3min (1min RI)
Distance - 6km
Time - 33.23min
Av pace - 5.26min/km
AHR - 152; MHR - 207

It did improve marginally but by about the 4th repeat I couldn't get the thought of breakfast (ie food) out of my head - I was hungry. Not that it made me run any faster.

The day was pretty much like the run - slow. Trying to read an academic paper and I could feel my eyes closing. This would entail getting up and going for a walk, usually to the kitchen for another cup of coffee. In the kitchen there was a box of chocolates for fund raising purposes - the number of times I looked at the contents of that box but somehow managed to resist.

Uh oh, that little red warning light is flashing...batteries running low...time to go to bed. Goodnight.

Sometimes we need a day to slow down. By the way, did you resist? I am not sure because you wrote: in the kitchen THERE WAS a box of chocolate.....

sounds like you have the same delayed hump-day syndrome that I do. Thursdays are just the worst!

Congratulations on your resistance CJ. Fund raising chocolates are pretty boring anyway.

I love those little sleeping critters, CJ. Very cute.

It's a change of seasons thing I hope. Staying under the covers is getting so much more tempting lately.
