Some days feel like such a routine. I don’t mind it completely, but I definitely thrive on change so like mixing things up so all my days don’t follow the same schedule. Yesterday, though, was the epitome of a groundhog day for me.
I woke up around 6:00 to be able to leave for work by 6:45. Though I don’t have to be there that early, I like having time in the car and at work before everyone gets there to just soak in the quiet and me time. I headed home when my meeting ended, relaxed for a couple of minutes before getting ready for a run, ran, showered, then made dinner. I got in bed to watch TV and do some blogging, and then it was time to go to sleep to be able to wake up and do it again…
My run was good; my legs felt happy, and I smiled and mouthed the words to the music I was listening to as I ran. I ran 4 miles at 9 minute miles. But again, nothing outstanding. I then came home and, after showering, made dinner. It was tasty and not overly difficult, and it actually fit some of what I am learning clean eating to be about.

It’s funny because as I write this, I think what I had was just a not great day. I’ve come to be so happy, outgoing, and peppy on a regular basis that just another day comes to seem so plain. I guess I can be thankful that it wasn’t a bad day; just average. Do you enjoy getting into routine or do you like change more? What do you do to ensure you have more good days than average or bad?
But I do have two exciting discounts to share with you!
The first coupon code is for the Athleta Iron Girl race series that I’m running in April in Clearwater. If you’re going to be in the Tampa Bay area or want to make a trip, you can get 10% off the 5k or half marathon with the code TBBLOGGERS13. You can find more information and sign up on their website. That discount code expires February 28th.
The second is from Pretty Muddy. I ran it in 2012 and had the best time! I would highly recommend signing up for one of their races if there’s one near you.
