However I couldn't get back to sleep and was vaguely wondering what productive things I could do when I realised it was my running day and that instead of going for a run after they were asleep this evening I could go this morning.
I've been training for a 5K now for several weeks, using the 5K Runner app, and so far it's going well, but I am still getting used to working out when to fit the training into my day/week.
I'm not sure this morning has convinced me to set an alarm to run in the early morning, but it really was a glorious day to run today.
The sky looked like this:
There was hardly any traffic on the road, and everyone who I passed smiled or said Good Morning.
And to top it all off, when I got home I remembered that there was half an avocado in the fridge, so I could make my favourite sugar-free breakfast for myself:
It couldn't be simpler. Toast some wholemeal bread (preferably with seeds and/or grains in it). Spread liberally with salted butter. Mash an avocado on top (if the avocado won't mash easily with a fork it's not ready to eat).
I truly think it is perfection on a plate.
And here's another picture of the beautiful sky, just because.
