The Early Riser

Stanford track when it's too early and dark to see the other side
"The sky is still dark, even though your alarm went off. It's cold outside and warm in bed. Maybe your husband, your child, your cat, or your fabulous new lover is curled up against you. Perhaps you stayed out too late, and you had that one more glass of wine. Or your couldn't stop reading the new Stieg Larsson mystery. Or you're worn out from work, from seeing friends, from kids, from life stress.

Today may be the first day of the rest of your life, but it also might be the 183rd day of your current workout regimen. Every fiber of your being groans, "Do I have to get up? Couldn't I just skip the workout just this morning." "-Mina Samuels, Run Like a Girl

Yup this echoes my sentiments exactly upon waking this Wednesday morning.
On today's schedule:

6:30am: coach personal training clients
9:00am: workout at NASA + photo-shoot for the new Vasper machines at NASA
11:00am: Triple jump practice plus running mechanics
2:45pm: playtime with my favorite little boy
5:30pm: a tiny bit of "me" time that will mostly include catching up on emails I'm light years behind on 6:30pm: coaching my 7th grade girls volleyball team
9:30pm: lights out and ready for a 7am weight room session... I desire at least 9 hours of sleep and need at least 7.5 hours to remotely function like a human being.

Yup that about sums up the day. Onward and upward despite the little voice in my head that's currently throwing a temper tantrum and pleading with me to snuggle back into my bed. (**flicks off the tiny demon on my right shoulder that's trying to tempt me to hit the snooze button one more time**)
