I have been getting up for the past two weeks to work out in the morning. I ride the bike three days a week and get in 2-3 days of strength training, around 30-45 minutes. I do not get up in the morning on the weekends to work out, but that may be an option in the future. I am up by 0515, at the gym around 0530, hit the bike hard for 50 minutes, go home, shower, wash hair, and get to work by 0800 or 0830. I am ready to pass out by lunchtime LOL! I do not LIKE this. By the time I get home I take a short nap or cook. I'm usually in the bed by 9 or 10pm.
Usually, right after the workout, I feel pretty good. It's the getting there and about 3 hours afterward that I am sooooo tired. So no, I don't get the endorphin rush after working out. What gave me a rush? Sleeping in today :) I will do some lower body weight training tonight before going out with friends. I hope to feel better about working out in the AM.
