Those Morning Workouts

It had been an extremely long time since I had seen the gym before the sun came up. Like, approximately exactly a year.

Exactly a year ago.

Yesterday, however, my alarm was set for 5:00am, my workout clothes were laid out, and I felt an impending doom on Monday when I could not fall asleep until 11:30.

As a first year teacher, I have to participate in a program in order to get my credential cleared. Our group meets once a month from 4:30-7:30. Since I don't usually leave work until around 3:15, I knew I would not have enough time to squeeze in a workout. So, I was up before the birds. Well, okay, I was an idiot and set my alarm for 5am on THURSDAY instead of Tuesday which meant I woke up at 5:37 and panicked. I still made it though, and was rewarded with this.

I was riding the endorphin high for the rest of the day. There's just something about being done exercising before most people are out of bed that makes me feel a little more alive. I realized that I actually enjoy the occasional morning workout and I may add it into my weekly routine. MAYBE. Tonight, I was rewarded with this post-storm sky.

So, I guess the evening workouts aren't too bad either.

When do you prefer to workout?


  1. Man I remember the feeling of runs before everyone woke up lol. It is such a great feeling! I think that's why unlike the occasional opening shift at the gym . I'm not working out but I accomplished a whole shift of work before my kids and most humans get out of bed.

  2. Lmao that brain pic is soooo me!! I love riding the endorphin high all day after a morning workout. It's hard to motivate ourselves to get it done sometimes. But worth it!

  3. Yay! Great job still going to the gym...if I had woken up late, I would have skipped it! LOL!
    I love running in the morning when everyone is still sleeping, it makes me feel so alive! Plus, I feel great starting my morning off with a run!
