This happened Wednesday night:
It would be so much cooler if my phone weren't in Italian, but the rough translation is that the 4:47 Tuesday/Thursday alarm was turned off!
Thursday morning when all my friends who are training for Chicago or Marine Corps or some crazy Ironman stuff got up to go running, I slept in.
It felt extra glorious because I woke up at 4:44. It sucks getting older. I swear that would not have happened to me 10 years ago. But even though I woke up out of habit, I went right back to sleep!
The icing on the taper cake (since I can't eat cake while tapering, it's especially lovely).
And I should mention that I got to semi-sleep in today. I skipped boot camp, but I woke up early to get busy with work since I'm going to have to be offline for a while during transit this afternoon.
Hoping the extra sleep will make me feel even more ready.
