My schedule has been off the charts for the last week.
Between opening a show, working, having my mother come into town, attending my brother-in-law's birthday party, and all the social events that go along with each of these items, I haven't had very much time to rest.
In fact, for the last five nights, I have been up until after midnight in varying states of activity.
So when I woke up this morning and looked at my clock, I made a very distinct decision not to run. While I'm not particularly proud of it, the unintentional 90-minute nap that I ended up taking this afternoon points toward the further necessity of more sleep.
Here's the plan: step one, write this post to remind myself (in the future) what it was like to live an insane lifestyle for a few days and still try (unsuccessfully) to find time to run.
Step two: GO TO BED.
Step three: Wake up tomorrow morning and do the 12-mile run that I was scheduled to complete today.
Step four: Work all day.
Step five: Run the three miles that I'm supposed to run tomorrow.
Step six: Return to blog and write triumphant post about getting back on track.
Step seven: GO TO BED.
The plan starts now.
