Waking up early

Tried a new tactic this morning, literally. I made myself get up with my S.O. and do my AM Yoga while he got ready to leave for work. I am not a morning person, but I have to say, I feel more awake than I normally would at this time (9:30 am for the record.)

I figure doing this will allow me to step up my workouts, since I've been doing my yoga at lunch and then every other day hitting the gym around 6. This way, Yoga is done, and I can do something else at lunch time (still planning on hitting the gym every other day.)

This brings up an interesting point for me, I have been shying away from "new" workouts lately. Oh I've queued up a ton of new videos to try, and I still have a couple DVD's I haven't played through yet, but I keep falling back on "safe" workouts. Ones where I know how hard I'm going to work, and I know how long they are. I don't know how to get myself past this mental block other than to just do the new workouts.

Alright. Day one of this morning stuff is a success. Let's see how long I can keep it up!

Great job getting up! I would love to get up a bit earlier to get a work out done but I don't have the motivation to do it. : )

As for the running shoes....I would go to a running specialty store and get fitted. The people that work there are trained to look at how you walk/run to see what type of shoe is right for you. It really makes all the difference. Good luck!

I save my "new" workout dvds for the weekends when I have more time to experiment. On weekdays, when I only have an hour, to exercise, shower, and change, I stick to "safe" videos.
