Due to having a somewhat busy week, I decided to give it a shot. I got up this morning at 5:45 and met up with my pal Matt for a 5ish mile run around the neighborhood.
It was a struggle to get out of bed when it was dark and SO early, but I managed and was feeling fine on the run. I had plenty of time to grab a shower and head to the office after.
Unfortunately, I ended up feeling tired all day. Not to mention I was starving all day long. By 4pm, I was yawning like crazy and couldn't wait to get home and relax on the couch.
Maybe it's that I'd need to make it a habit before it doesn't affect me in such a way? I'm used to getting myself out of bed to do long runs early in the morning, but I typically come home and take a nap after them before moving on to other activities.
I'll probably try it out again, but so far? I'm not convinced it's for me. It would help me free up some time in the evenings, but is it worth it if I'm too tired to do much of anything by the time the evening rolls around?
We shall see.
