Day 8: Early to Bed, Early to Rise

I swear, one of the most difficult things that I have to overcome is waking up early and working out. I could go to bed with my workout gear on, including my shoes, and I will still keep hitting the snooze button until it's time to go to work. So I am going to try hitting the sack early. Makes sense to me ...we'll see how it goes. If that doesn't work I'm going to have to explore a new approach. But I have faith in myself that, routine, early morning workouts will become a habit.

You may notice that I am making two posts today. Well actually the Day 7 post was just late. It was about 1:30 am when I walked in the door. Just incase anyone is keeping track.

My HIIT run routine consists of a 5 minute warm up, then run at a rapid pace (80% of my perceived max) for 60 seconds, jog for 2 minutes to allow my heart rate to decrease, and then repeat 5 times followed by a 5 minute cool down.

As my performance and fitness improves I will up the difficulty. But this is plenty at the moment.

See you tomorrow ...bright and early.
