Amazing visuals, amazing sounds…
Want some morning motivation? This video just made my day.
Charlie Dark with some OSSUM tips:
Successful running is about confidence, the more confident you feel the further and faster you can go knowing that whatever the road throws up at you you will be ready.
Here are my top five tips for this week to help you nail that goal.
Looking forward to putting these to practice this Sunday. RUN RUN RUN! ^__^
The New Regime.
I will use (and ignore) any tactic to get me motivated enough to get up and out of bed in the mornings. If I could choose anywhere to waste hours away it would be my bed (I have The World’s Best Duvet Ever) or the shower (I really love showers, you know?).
This morning was no exception. I have a really long day today so I mentally structured the early part of my day to make sure I wouldn’t stress myself too much. I even translated my mental schedule into a literal schedule so that I’d stick to it. This is what it looked like:
6 - alarm.
6:30 - up, wash, dress, eat.
7 - run to station.
8 - Bootcamp.
8:45 - get train home.
9:15 - run home.
9:30 - shower, wash hair.
10 - snack.
10:15 - sleep.
11:45 - get ready.
12:45 - leave for work.
How fail-proof is that?! I was anticipating exhaustion and I wanted to combat that and get everything done on time. That way I could sleep before I got to work so that I wouldn’t be a zombie for the event I’m hosting tonight.
I woke up naturally this morning (for once), before my alarm went off, just when it was starting to get light outside. My first thought was ‘oooh, Spring is well on the way if it’s this light this early’. My second thought, after looking at the clock was ‘FML ON CRACK’. It was 07:51. ‘Nice one, idiot’.
My plan of military precision went out of the window. I had ages before I had to get up so I went back to sleep.
Moral of the story kids, although you may be stressed and sleep-deprived, NEVER FORGET TO SET YOUR ALARM.
