I like to get at least three miles in on non long run days. I feel three miles is a good distance to qualify for a good workout and for good training. If I can get three miles in in the morning I am a happy camper.

On a different note, I don't eat before my morning runs. I don't drink coffee, either. It's too early for me to even think about eating. And either Hubs makes coffee when he wakes up or I make it when I get back from my run. I wonder if I should start fueling with something when I wake up. I think any type of sports energy thing might upset my empty stomach. Any suggestions?
Speaking of eating, I've gotten into the habit of having a turkey sandwich for breakfast. I know it sounds weird, but I'm not a huge egg fan so eggs don't really work for me in the morning and Mama needs protein. I use one slice of bread and load it up with turkey and a handful of a spring salad mix. It's really good and easy to eat on my drive into work. Anyone else eat non-traditional breakfasts?
