Even before the time change, getting up early for my workouts has been a struggle. I think it’s residual from a couple of crazy weeks: the 100k and traveling to MS for Dustin’s 50.
When I set my 4am alarm last night, I asked Dustin what the chances were of us getting up early and actually going to the gym. 50/50 he says. Based in the past 2 weeks, those odds are high.
Somehow I woke up this morning feeling pretty dang good. Maybe it was the challenge. We made it to the gym by 5. I swam my 40 laps in my own lane in a sparkling clean, slightly cool pool and ran 40 minutes on the treadmill.
It’s really not a bad way to start a day. Hopefully I can remember that the next time I want to go back to sleep at 4am.
