Who knew so many people got up at 5am?

Yesterday I made a decision. Instead of going to the gym after work and spending an entire hour working out on the cardio machines (snore), I would break it up into 2 half hour sessions. One before work, and one after work. The gym is just around the corner from my house, so this is no big deal.

I got up at dark-oh-thirty this morning and threw on my gym clothes, (hubby was initially going to come with me, but backed out when I shoved him awake this morning and he realized I was serious). I jumped in the car, BEFORE coffee, and raced around the corner. I thought it was strange that there were so many cars in the parking lot, after all, the mall wouldn't be open for another 4 hours, but figured there was some kind of night inventory crew or something. I opened the doors and my jaw dropped. All of those people in the parking lot were IN THE GYM. So much for my quiet peaceful workout. Doesn't anyone have anything better to do at 5:30 in the morning? The only elliptical machine left was the squeaky one with the broken cardio-theatre hook-up... so my workout was silent. I tried not to be too miserable, after all, I hadn't had coffee yet so the quiet was probably better anyway. Except for the fact that I couldn't drown out the annoying squeaky noise with some Great Big Sea. Stupid squeaky noise. How much can a can of W-D40 possibly cost anyway? Damn, I'd even put some canola oil on it if that noise would stop. I couldn't believe the lady at the desk was peacefully reading her novel throughout my squeak-filled workout. Maybe she's deaf. I wrote a note in the suggestion box to fix the squeaky elliptical, which will probably go ignored... the box is really just there for decoration I think.

Tomorrow I shall try 5:15 and see if I can sneak in before the crowd. Don't people sleep in anymore?

Oh well. If this is the worst thing that happens in my day, all is good.

You're a better person than I am. I abhor exercise unless it's in the context of some game or sport (in my case, fast-pitch softball.) I would no more do time on a treadmill than I would whap myself over the head with a hammer.

Exercising...on purpose? I think it's hilarious that everyone had the same idea you did and now I know why grocery shopping at dark thirty is such a breeze-- everyone but me is working out :-)

Nice idea! My gym doesn't even open that early, and before reading this post if it did I'd wonder why!

I intend to go running in the park in the mornings...I'll start the day after tomorrow ;-)

I bow to you. Not only for working out, but mainly for being able to get up so early. You are my hero and my queen.

They say the morning is best for working out, but that early morning is a tough one. I know a few people who have been doing it for many years...and others who just start and stop, start and stop. Good luck, Jewels!
