Yes, this is something I've done many a time in the past - skipping my Sunday run due to sleep!
This problem with me is a typical example of a "starting trouble" that I have when I plan to restart something after a long hiatus. Its been two months since I did my regular run. The last I did was when I was in Las Vegas - Even that was a short 10K or lesser one that I did for the sheer pleasure of running on "The Strip".
This morning I woke up at 5AM, just to realize that I'd missed my morning run with Chennai Runners. This disappointment lasted quiet long, when incidently I bumped into a mail from my friend, the subject of which read - "The 10 Most Annoying Alarm Clocks". This was the one that brought a smile of my face (Thanks to my friend!), and hence thought of sharing with everyone...
Here you go...
The 10 Most Annoying Alarm Clocks (Rated from 10 to 1)
#10 - Climbing clock . It hangs above your head and starts climbing while it rings. Don't wake up fast enough, and you won't be able to shut it up without a ladder.
# 9 Wake Up Puzzle . You have to build the puzzle to make it stop
# 8 Wake or Curse . You can ask it what the time is and it will answer. But if you don't wake up quickly enough it will curse you.
# 7 High Tech . This one has a vibrator, 95 db alarm and police style rotating light that you cannot ignore.
# 6 Find The Pin - You need find the right pin to stop it's ringing. Not going to stay sleepy after this mission.
# 5 Chicken and Egg Problem - The egg laying alarm clock. It will only quiet down after you put all the eggs back.
# 4 GI Joe . You will wake to the sound of your commander's wake up call. Don't mess with it.
# 3 Floating Around - Will float around the room until you'll catch it.
# 2 Kaboom - This acoustic grenade will wake the neighborhood with it's ultra loud sound level.
# 1 Hide and Seek - The winner is the hide and seek alarm clock. Once it begins to ring it falls down to the floor and finds a random place to hide. Chase it down or else you're doomed.
I will not miss my running sessions henceforth - GI Joe to the rescue!
