I don’t have one. I need a good morning routine. I just roll out of bed, put on my running clothes, and head out the door. That’s it. Oh, wait. I do fill up my water bottle.
I definitely need to work on this. I probably should wake up earlier, eat, stretch and then go. I ran two mornings this week so far, and I did struggle a little. Now, this could be because I was coming back after being sick and my last run was a half marathon. It could be because it was 90%+ humidity. Whatever the reason, I did feel as if I was missing a little something.
What is your morning routine? Any advice?
It is just soooooo freaking hard to wake up early. It’s hard enough to get out the door, but if I now have to wake up even earlier just to fuel. This is way too difficult for me! But, then if I want to improve, this may just be something I need to do. I am thinking to start, I will start small. Baby steps! Maybe just eat a banana? That’s something easy. I don’t need to prepare it, it’s full of carbohydrates to keep me going. Then I can work on having something a little more before harder workouts, or at least long runs. I also need to start implementing more dynamic stretches, and I will soon write a post about what I will decide to do before each work out.
Let’s make this happen!
