Early bird gets the workout

This was another ridiculously busy week for me, which meant very little time for workouts.  Next week is not looking any better.  In fact, it's looking worse.  Well, I shouldn't say that.  I have some really fun things planned, but they are going to take up literally every evening next week.  So ... when exactly am I going to work out?

Well ... I think I'm going to have to try and be a morning exerciser.


A friend of mine wants to try and get moving in the morning too, so we're going to try it together.  Get up at 5 a.m. and be at the gym by 5:15-5:30.  Should give us time to work out and get cleaned up in plenty of time for work at 8 a.m.

I don't know how well this is going to work for me.  Right now, getting up at 6:45 a.m. is a challenge. This likely means some earlier bedtimes and missing the end (or all) of a few Rangers games.

But ... I'm anxious to at least give it a try.  It'll be nice to start the day with a workout.  I'm anxious to see how it changes how I feel throughout the day.

Anyone have any tips for becoming a morning exerciser?

  1. Morning workouts are hard--I haven't even gotten the energy to get back into it this week--but they are SO worth it when you can get a good routine going!!

  2. I think it's all about knowing your body. If you think you can do AM workouts, give it a try. I for one know they are not something I would be able to do and then function the rest of the day at work. Good luck! Let us know how it goes! :)
