I woke up this morning at about 5:30 although my alarm was set for 5:45. This is the new thing… waking up 15 or so minutes before my alarm is set to blast. Good times. Especially when, the last few nights, my brain takes ages to shut down and let me fall asleep.
This marching band started playing in my chest and head while I was visiting Washington this last weekend and not only is the music diverse, but the players are enthusiastic and possibly in a different time zone. So at 5:30 this morning a dance song was playing and all my muscles were waiting to spring out of bed….
I had planned to work out, that’s why my alarm was set for so early. Down in the work out room there is only one elliptical machine and I think it is the favorite, so I’m conscious that I should get there early, work out hard and then make room for others to pretend they are great runners. This morning I had actually decided I would go running outside because I didn’t want to be an elliptical hog… but… when I stepped out of my room I noticed a lot of that cold, white stuff covering the earth and I don’t know that I have the courage to go jogging in the snow.
It was good… and then I came back to shower and eat breakfast.
Now? Class is starting two hours late!!
The question is… do I take a nap and make up for the sleep I lost to the marching band and the elliptical or do I work on homework? Since I have dinner clean up this week, which leaves about 2 hours in the evening for homework I think I should probably get to work.
I may have to start having dance parties because apparently my red blood cells upped to compensate for the altitude and just kept going.
