Early Morning Workouts

I do not understand how people can get up at crazy hours of the morning to fit in a workout.  Of course, those same people probably don’t understand how I convince myself to run or bike after a full day of work.

Once a week, I get up at 5:00 to go to the pool.  On a normal day, I get up at 5:15, so this is not that much earlier.  No, I don’t swim for only 15 minutes – since the pool doesn’t open til 6, I go to work about an hour late.  My boss is cool about it. But I don’t want to push her generosity.

So, for example, tonight I have a 6 mile run scheduled.  I’m slow, so that will take somewhere around 75 minutes.  The idea of getting up at 4 am or earlier makes me want to cry.  And honestly, I know myself.  I would just reset my alarm and plan to hit the treadmill after work.  If I had something to do after work, it would be a different story, but on any given day, sleep would win in the morning.

So hats off to you, early morning fitness types.  You are crazy, but I’m still impressed.

  1. I 1000% prefer to work out AFTER work – I feel like my performance is way better when I’m not wishing I was in bed. That having been said, I’ve been dragging myself outside to run before it’s hot lately. Mind you, I get up around 6AM, so nothing crazy, but that feels rough to me!

  6. You test this by utilizing surveys, marketing software
    or perhaps a simple one on one chat. There are three details in the plan that Walker and Wisconsin’s Republican-controlled Legislature say they’re going to pass once Democrats exhaust sand to throw inside the machinery of government.
    People are sharing gossip, news, recipes, tips, advice,
    videos and photos.
