My dog has the most amazing internal clock. My alarm goes off at 5:00 am. She comes into the room and wakes me up at 4:59. It's completely amazing to me.
It's also a bummer, as I'm a snooze hitter. Not only is she depriving me of that 1 minute....she's actually keeping me from the next 9 as well. :-)
(Hubby loves it!)
I got right up, put both dogs out, got changed and out the door earlier than usual. Mentally, I was awake and ready to go.
It was apparent very soon into the run that my body didn't necessarily echo that same sentiment. My running was stiff and forced. Both of my legs (but more so my right) were not happy to be out running.
I ran a different route hoping it would help keep my mind focused on other things....and it worked a little. :-)
