I DO my workouts in the morning, but they vary. I belong to a fitness center and rely heavily on classes. I do two classes on Mondays and Fridays, and one class on T/W/Th. My husband and I hike on the weekends and I also am part of a woman's group training for a 5K in May.

I can do strength training or gym workouts whenever, but my run is strictly a morning thing. My route isn't through the safest places in the world and I'm running solo, so I am often creeped out by someone else on the road when I run in the evening. Early in the morning, there is no one else out but the runners and dog walkers, and I can come home and shower off the sweat before starting my day energized and proud of myself.

I like to get my workout first thing in the morning or at lunch time.
I found that when I am super busy at work, it is sometime difficult to go away from my desk - for lunch or gym... So it is better for me to start my day with exercise - that way there is no excuse to get it done!

Way to go to the very early bird!!! I can't imagine doing that... I have a difficult time falling asleep at night but I am always up at 0600 - alarm or not... but getting up earlier than that would be difficult!

Thanks for sharing!!!

I do try to workout first thing in the morning but some days it just isn't possible. I have to be at work by 5:30 so that means getting up by about 2:30 to get in a workout....if I don't get to bed early enough (before 8pm), I can't do a morning workout.

Morning workout sessions seem to work out best for me...once I get home from work, put a fork in me...I'm done! No energy left to do much of anything!

Don't expect a good day...make one!

For me the first thing I do when my feet hit the floor is to drink 16 oz of water with 1Tablespoon of lemon juice in it. Then I put on my workout clothes, grab my shoes and walk or jog for 20 minutes before anyone else gets up. If i have time later I will do more in 10 to 20 minute sessions.

Do you usually get your distance as you start your day?

Is GOING the DISTANCE the "first" thing you do in the morning? If so - how is it for you?

Share your thoughts, experience, opinions... let's chat....
