Pros associated with 7am workouts:

  • Energizes me and gives me a great rush that lasts the rest of the day
  • I’m not beaten down from a day of stress, so I have more energy
  • It’s done – don’t have to think about it for the rest of the day or worry how I will fit it in
  • No traffic

Cons associated with 7am workouts:

  • I’m too lazy to get up early enough to eat breakfast at home, so I eat in the car on the way and risk disaster
  • I’m too  lazy to get up early enough to make coffee, so I wait until I get home and risk caffeine deficiency headache
  • It’s DARK when I wake up and leave at 6:30 (who knew?)
  • Reiteration – it’s DARK and COLD when I wake up and leave at 6:30

I tried to do day 2 of the C25K running plan today after working out with the trainer, but I couldn’t do it.  Turns out you can’t wear the same pants you wore 60 pounds ago and expect them to stay up while jogging (even if they’re clingy yoga pants).  One jog around the track spent constantly pulling my pants up from halfway down my butt pissed me off enough to make me stop, so I ended up just walking for about 30 minutes.

I have GOT to get new clothes.  Lord knows I don’t need another excuse to blow off the C25K thing.
