So today was my third day of 4:30 a.m. gym time. I wasn't sure how I would feel but I REALLY love my workouts. I have more energy in the early morning than I do at night and it's been fun to be awake when my hubby gets up! I'm also feel more confident in my work outs and enjoying running. If I stick to the interval schedule I have in my head, I will start running for 30 minutes straight on February 9th! The week after that I'll try to start running 5k's at least 2 of my 5 workouts. :o) It will kind of depend on how long it is taking me at first.
The only negative for now is getting used to being up so early. I seriously have this dip in energy around 9 in the morning.. right when my younger boys are waking up! I am sure that after a couple of weeks I will just be used to it. For now, I'll keep trucking along!
