why am i up so early

yesterday i went fro a bike ride and actually made it up the big hill. Holy cow. before m and I got this tag along thing, i hadn't been biking in about 7 years. so i thought I was doing pretty good on the last few rides. well it turns out those "hills" i posted about previously were more like, um, gentle slopes, rises, dips? not hills. The thing i went up yesterday was a hill. Well, something happened on this hill. I think 7 years of phlegm released from my lungs. I don't know if it was the deep breathing, the cold air, or the near heart attack, but holy cow I coughed up some lugeees after that. Now when I take a breath, it seems to go on twice as long. I hope I am not describing some acute medical condition where my lungs actually ripped open... I hope this is a sign that I just made my body healthier. Anyway, I did think I was going to die for a little while after I got home, but now I am feeling pretty good. Not bad for a ride around the block!

So is this why I am up so early? Did I engage some super power of oxygen getting? Am I so hot burning now that I no longer need sleep? I hope so becaseu I am awake. I am going to experiment with this awake state and see if I can actually get up this early and make it through the ... uh oh I am yawning... make it through the day without an afternoon nap.

Or maybe I will go back to bed. It is warm in there. And snuggly. mmmmmmmmm... fold laundry or snuggle? This is tough...

Your biking sounds great, I can't make myself do it in the cold. Vroot on the oxygen consumption too. On Monday morning I had the snuggle or go running dilemma, and actually forced myself to get up and head to the gym. We are awesome women!
