I am just beat.

I am sure I have posted about this but it is worth saying again. Exercise in the morning is far superior to exercise in the evening, in my opinion.

Last night I went and walked. I walked 3 miles in just under an hour. I was not pouring sweat like I do on the elliptical, but it was a good workout. In fact I think I am going to start adding that to my routine. Whether it is on the treadmill or just outside I am gonna start to walk more. Partially in preparation for the 5k I signed up for, but also because it is just different. Over time I will work up to running portions of it, but for now I need to work on the walking and build up the strength in my knees.

So why the title? Well I tried to wake up to get to the gym this morning and just could not do it. I was able to work out Monday night and make it in Tuesday morning, but I think my turn around workout limit it 1 per week. So hence forth if I end up working out / exercising in the evening, I will not be working out the next morning. I lose all the energy return goodness from the morning workout if I worked out the night before. Not to mention I am helping to build a deck this weekend. I am not sure what kind of activity points I get for that but I am sure it would be a few.

Did you ever think you'd have to force yourself to slow down, pace yourself, and not work your muscles too hard? You should be so proud of yourself!

I do love morning exercise, but I hate waking up. I to find it hard to wake up early to exercise again if I've exercised in the evening. I try to wake up early, early in the week and if I don't later in the week, I still have the evenings. Did that tonight. Just could not get out of bed, but I had "Charlie's Angels" to finish so I wanted to exercise ;)
