My inner athlete?

The alarm goes off at 5:00am. Ugh. I hit snooze, turn over and try to grab an extra few minutes sleep. Mmm.... that's not happening, my mind is already off and running, turning over and over various things that need to be considered/done/figured out.

But it's COLD. And DARK. And I. Do. Not. Want. To. Get. Up.

I lie there and run through my legs program in my head. Then someone says out loud: Come, on time to go and kick some arse! Huh? Oh, that was me....

At 5:10am, I'm driving out of the garage. It's good to know that I can usually rely on one of the many people who live inside my head to motivate me. Not sure who that one actually was, but at least it wasn't IFG (Inner Fat Girl). She would have insisted on staying in bed and skipping training altogether. And probably having chocolate for breakfast.

I reckon if someone said that to me at 5 am, I'd jump up and punch them - even if it was me :P

Hey Kek,

my 5am motivating voice works pretty well too. IFG is rarely in control at that time of day!

Kathryn, - at least you will still use some energy, by the sudden jump of anger and feel like getting up, working hard, letting off steam!

Kek, I am familiar with stupid alarms squealing in my ear at either 3.45am or 4.30am for work, and wanna throw the thing across the room. At least I'm committed, never am late, get up, have brekkie and bike off in dark to work! I actually enjoy my weekend sleep ins till about 7am and get up and train then!
