Why is it such a struggle for me to start a morning run?
-The alarm clock does not go off. Now that the hubby has lost a few pounds on the Whole 30 diet, he does not snore as much so his snoring doesn’t wake me at 3, 4, and/or 5 am. Also, the nightly fireworks that would run from 10 pm to 3 am have stopped (thank the Lord).
-I can never find all of my running stuff. Where’s the other sock? Where’s the other calf sleeve? Where’s the running tank that does not make me look like a big rig? This still happens even when I lay out things the night before.
-I (or someone else) misplaced some things, e.g. keys, wallet, shoes, and I have to spend 10 minutes finding them. Once, I found my keys in the freaking freezer.
-My iPhone and/or Apple Watch battery is low, and I have to spend 30 minutes to charge these devices
-I’ll bullsh*t on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter for a hot minute. Those “unusual facts” Buzzfeed articles are addictive.
-Sometimes I make the mistake of checking work email before heading out, and I’ll answer one or two important emails. Then I’m like, while I’m here with the laptop open, I might as well answer these other emails. Next thing I know, I composing and sending emails for the next hour.
-I get all of my clothes on and ready to head out, and my body tells me that I have to poop . . . again. I normally poop as soon as I wake up, but sometimes I have two to three rounds of pooping before leaving the apt.
-Ok, I’m out of the apt and making my way to the park. Crap, I forgot my bottle of water, mask, and/or Apple Watch.
-Crap, one side of my earphones does not work, so I gotta buy a new pair from a random bodega.
Speaking of earphones for the newer iPhones. Why do some of the wired earphones require Bluetooth? Or did I buy some bootleg earphones?
What things prevent (or rather delay) you from starting your morning run?
