How to get up early to train before work

13 10 2011

I am not a morning person by nature. My teaching job requires I get up at 5:30 or so just to make the commute to my classroom. So, I never considered the possibility of getting a workout in before work until a couple years ago. Now I get up at 4:45 every workday and get a nice run under my belt first thing each day.

Here are my tips how this can be accomplished:

  1. Get rid of your TV. Television is probably the number one reason why people want to stay up late.
  2. Get your spouse on board
  3. Get a good book and head to bed around 8:00 and start reading.
Now you can grab a swim at lunch and a bike ride after work for three short but intense workouts a day!
Good luck
