Lately my boyfriend has been wanting to go out on Friday nights. I don’t have the heart to say no because he’s such a busy guy and we barely get any time together. So when he can find a couple hours to spend with me, I like to be available. He’s very supportive, so if I told him No, he would understand. I just love spending any time I can with him.
The problem is that I have to be up by 5am on Saturday mornings to go to my 10k training group at The Runners Den. I got 3 hours of sleep last night but I forced myself to get up this morning and go anyway cause I knew I would regret it if I didn’t go. It’s hard to pull yourself out of bed after only 3 hours sleep, especially if you are an oversleeper already.
(BTW today we had a Good Form Running clinic. They videotaped us running and then critiqued us. I can’t even remember my critique. I did learn what cadence is though. Nate talked about posture and I learned that you should lean into your run. I’m going to do the running clinic a few more times till I understand exactly what I’m doing wrong. I’m still a little confused on how to run with good form.)
I wore my heart rate monitor this time. We ran/walk for 2 miles. It took me 39.03 minutes. I burned 271 calories.
My favorite people were there that I went to breakfast with a couple weeks ago. I’m supposed to train with them at North Canyon High School at 5am on most mornings, but I haven’t met up with them yet. The reason is because I don’t go to sleep at a decent time in order to wake up.
The only reason I don’t go to sleep at a decent time is because I am addicted to the internet and am on it all night till I pass out. Then I sleep all day.
One of girls commented that my problem is Discipline.
I’ve decided to work on this problem starting TODAY.
I am going to fix this Sleep issue NOW.
I sleep 12 hours at a time most days. That is just too much.
I want normal sleeping habits. I want to go to bed at 8pm, sleep for 8 hours, wake up at 4am and meet them at the track by 5am to train. I don’t like how my sleeping habits are interfering with my training.
I need to be on the same sleeping schedule everyday, not random hours all the time. My body needs regular sleep at regular hours.
I want to be awake during the day like normal people.
So I’m going to get rid of my computer for awhile until I’ve disciplined myself with healthy and normal sleep habits. That means I wont be able to blog. But, I will be able to check in on Facebook with my iphone.
Hopefully when I get my computer back I will have disciplined myself and trained myself into a new way of sleeping and wont fall back into old routines. I won’t let it happen.
