Lookit all the morning workouts, everyone!

Two weeks of workouts. Most days it's no more than about 30 minutes. I should probably give myself some more time to get in some longer workouts but since they're on the shorter end, I try my best to maximize my time. I work a little harder during the JM Michael's workouts, or incorporate speed and hills during my short treadmill runs. I'm usually pretty satisfyingly sweaty after these workouts and the endorphins carry me though a good portion of the day. 

As you can see from this week's workouts, I'm killing it in the morning workout sessions. It has been.... ages since I've last worked out in the mornings before work, but it's definitely worth the bleary eyed wake up calls at 4:00, 4:30 5:00. 

My running has been slow and I know this past year has done a number on my endurance, but I'm slowly and steadily doing my best to work my fitness level back up to par. 

I swear I say this every post. 

Going to spend the week preparing for the Rainier to Ruston Team Relay race. This year we are all running 3 legs each in preparation for Ragnar in July. I'm not sure why I keep signing up for these races, especially in the summer when running takes a backseat, but... I keep doing it. Must mean I like it at least a little bit... right?
