The joy of morning running

I feel pretty dumb. For a long while I have struggled with time management and sleep. About 3-4 years ago I started to really take sleep seriously, which has been great for me, but one of my maxims was always "sleep if you are tired." This fed into my loathing of getting out of bed in the morning. Consequently, I was always a pretty terrible morning workout/run dude, despite people telling me that it is the perfect time to run.
On Monday we ended up having yet another debacle in the evening, so I ended up not being able to run. I ended up waking up early yesterday and had an hour to kill.....perfect for the 30 minute run. It felt great, and it was superb to have that knocked off so early in the day. My cross training was a bit lame, I took the dog for an extra long walk at a fast pace, which seemed to annoy him more than anything tbh. Still though, got it done. I wasn't able to run this morning, but my plan is to move my primary running time into the morning for the rest of the program.
Diet was mediocre the last few days for a cornucopia of reasons, but today is looking good. Hope everyone is doing great.
