Last Night...

...I went to sleep in my workout clothes.

On purpose.

I had had that random thought on Sunday night but didn't do it. Then yesterday I was inspired by my sister who old me that she had slept in her workout clothes on Sunday night in order to minimize excuses to getting up early.

So I tried it last night.

Other than waking up at midnight, 2:30, and 4:20, there wasn't much difference.

Unfortunately, that's kind of a big difference... So I'm not sure if I'll do it again tonight or not.

But, I did finally wake up - and GET up early!

And here are the fruits of my labors (not bad for being done before 6 in the morning, right?) -

this was during my three minutes of cooling down (rounding out the 45 minutes).
the other 42 minutes were split 50/50 between running 5 mph at a 4% decline (totally works the abs)
and walking 3.5 mph at a 15% incline (with 1 minute of 40% incline thrown in there just for fun).
 i'm sore.

So, are you still sleeping in your workout clothes? That sounds terribly uncomfortable to me...but if it works...

So good to see you on Saturday!

good to see you too! and sadly... no. i just did it the one night, and since i woke up a million times during the night i decided it wasn't worth it. but i haven't exercised in the morning like that since... so i'm debating about whether to do that regularly for a while until it becomes a habit to wake up early.

we'll see... (:
