I'm excited to report that the morning workouts are back! Recently, Alyssa had a revelation that if you don't gorge yourself on desserts at night, it's easier to wake up and workout in the morning. I've taken it seriously and it seems to be working. My legs are far from normal in the morning, but I don't feel like death warmed over when the alarm goes off, either.
Both yesterday and this morning, I banged out a little over seven miles before work. I'm pretty sure early morning workouts will always be treadmill workouts for two important reasons:
- I'm always fairly dehydrated in the morning and there's no way I'm going to carry water when I'm already half asleep anyway.
- I'm half asleep for at least 3/4 of the run
I'm actually really surprised I managed to wake up for this morning's workout after I worked a 13 hour day yesterday. That's a far from normal day for me and it was my choice to schedule things, but yikes was I tired afterwards.
Tonight I get a reward, though. Kisses from Katie, the charity I raised money for last year is hosting a pancake dinner fundraiser tonight. My friend and I are booking it to the restaurant after work to gorge ourselves on the best pancakes in CT.
Do you see a correlation between what you ate the night before and how easy it is to get moving in the morning?
Pancakes: yay or nay? I could not convince Mike to come to the dinner tonight. Something is wrong with that man.
