Transforming Into Regular Running

It’s easy to start out planning 3 runs per week. Fresh off the weekend high, you make the decision and before you know it, it’s Friday, you’ve run once and there’s no way to fit in 2 more runs before Saturday night.
I’m a reformed reforming procrastinator and so I like to tackle a project ASAP and get it at least partially knocked out so if I have to catch up, at the last minute, at least I have some work completed so I’m not starting from zero.
Which is why I got some cardio/exercise on Sunday (jump rope, Zumba exercises and yoga), Monday morning, I ran 3.1 miles and on Tuesday morning, I knocked out another 2.7 miles doing tempo runs. If I want to keep up with my 3 runs per week, technically, I could wait until Friday evening and crank out a few miles at the last minute, literally. But now that I’ve started these morning runs, I want to keep going.
So I’m thinking of running every day this week, just to get my energy levels up, and to build up my total mileage because although I haven’t checked recently, I am sure in behind in 2014 target mileage.
And that’s when I realized I’ve changed a little. I’m more willing to get up early to go running. Athletic goals. And I’m planning ahead and working ahead instead if procrastinating until the last minute. Personal goal.
I’m encouraged to keep going. I’m trying something new, and that something is actually making a plan and working it and I’m changing for the better in the process.
Talk about transformation Tuesday. From professional-snooze-button-operator to early morning runner.
