I'm feeling awesome this morning! Today was the first time I've done an early bike ride during the week before work and, lemme tell you, it was terrific. I was a little on the fence about it because I've never been a good "worker-outer" in the morning. I've tried off and on over the years to go running or hit the gym early before work and I've just never been productive. Being that I feel strong on the bike, I figured there's no time like the present to hit the road early and see how I do!
Getting going at 5:30am is tough no matter what you're doing, so my first couple of miles this morning were sluggish. However, I warmed up and ended up having a great ride! I watched the pretty sunrise as I came around the park and I really enjoyed the jump-start to my day. I know it'll take a little time to get adjusted to an early morning routine, but I already know the change would be something I'd love. I really want my evenings free these days too so this could be a nice solution. :) Plus, a daily bike ride before work will help with my speed as well since I'd be sort of pressed for time.
Looks like a win-win all around! Man, sometimes change really can be awesome.
