And the credit I can give has been earned because I've gotten up and done what was scheduled even though there have already been times that sleep would have been oh-so-better! Take yesterday for example - I knew I had 4 miles on the plan and that being the slower runner that I currently am (which is to say even MORE slow than my normal slow thanks to the knee) it was going to take a little longer than the 30 minutes I sometimes give myself when I hit the snooze button repeatedly.
So that alarm clock went off at the un-Godly hour of 3:30 AM and I only hit snooze ONE TIME. Yay me!!
But you know what else? I actually enjoyed myself! I had fun and I was able to pretty quickly lose myself in the sound of footfalls on the treadmill belt, fan whirring, and awesome music playing.
So even though I can't declare the training a success yet, I can certainly say that it is off to a good start!
