Could an early morning trip to the YMCA be in store for me?

Let's say I've been working long hours. And there really isn't anywhere during the rest of the week that I can sneak out of the office early. As a result, I get to head into the office later than usual tomorrow morning.

If I was smart, I'd still get up at my normal time. But instead of showering and heading into work, I'd eat a light breakfast and head downtown to the YMCA and run before I go to work. That would mean I could come home immediately after the work day was done and settle in to listen to the Badgers take on Indiana (notice I said listen since it's on that awful Big Ten Network, which oh yeah, I don't get).

But those first four words...

"If I was smart..."

I dunno if I'm smart enough to go to the YMCA early. Sure, I'd love to get into the morning workout habit. But I like my sleep. And I'm not sure how I'm going to feel in the morning. Because my head? It's kind of hurting tonight, although that's completely due to the fact that I couldn't eat dinner until after 8 p.m. tonight since I was stuck in a meeting all evening. And not eating? That's not a good thing.

I'm about to head off to bed now. Well, there's a book I'm going to read for a bit. But then I'll sleep. And even though I don't have to be to work at the normal time, I'll still set my regular alarm.

Because it might be kind of fun to be smart for a morning. Who knows, maybe an early morning run will make the day more tolerable.

I only wish I could work out in the morning! I am at work most days by 6 so no way am I getting up at 4! Yikes. But, hope you had success today!

Yeah, that didn't happen. I decided the extra hour of sleep was much more important than getting in an early morning run.

And then I worked late. Again. So I headed home to catch some Badger hoops instead of running. I'll go tomorrow. Really. I will.
