Last night I couldn't sleep well. Maybe the heat is coming, or I had enough rest, I don't know, but I couldn't stay in bed after 5:50 am. I decided I make an experiment, and start my day with exercise right away. Clothes on, little stretching, POSE drills, and here I go.
First sensation: it's summer, and it didn't feel like early morning. The sun was up for long, the temperature was comfortable. It felt like the middle of the day in another season.
I've met some new people, whom I haven't seen before, I mean I usually don't run this early. Young, old, all ages.
DOSE OF ADRENALIN
Back from my run, I was surprised how energetic I am.
Usually I'm energetic in the morning, but this was way higher in energy. I accomplished so much with so little effort, and I enjoyed getting done a lot of stuff. Made breakfast in seconds, cleaned up the room, prepared for today work, wrote a new article (with thoughts sorted out during the run), and killed a number of "unpleasant todo items". What's going on, I'm on fire! So I continued, and tackled some other "high resistance" items. For lunch time, it felt easy to make healthy choices, and I also made a 20 minute power walk.
As a side effect, my hunger and thirst are much better off. I was less hungry all day, and was more thirsty. This just what I need! Great!
I think I will try this another day again!
Do you exercise first thing in the morning?
What is your experience?
