Agreed.

Simple maths aswell. You're up for longer!

Something about being up and productive before 9am too. Most of the world is still waking up and you can get a lot of shit done.

On a similar note, I've started writing a detailed to do list. Blocking as frequently as 10 minutes. Such a simple thing to do, but it's made me waaaay more productive. The amount of time you can just piss away on social (yes, I'm aware!...) is remarkable.

Don't mind lifting weights early doors, but hate running that early (I.E. before 7am).

A standard gym session at work would be at 0830 four days a week.

Always up early for some sort of exercise whether it be running, gym, walk or swim

Will train fasted on days I run (anything under 10k) or hiit sessions at the gym but usually have a banana and possibly a protein shake of some sort before heavy lifting/strength training or longer runs

Also enjoy early afternoon sessions though, so did start doing two sessions a day (run in the morning and gym in the afternoon). Will probably go back to that after my holiday.

I don't think Ill go back now. Sleeping better than I have in ages and feel rejuvenated. 200kg prowler pushes at 7:10am... on half a banana
Does that not mash it into the gym floor?

Yeah, my morning runs were abysmal. Very frustrating.

Used to love running after midnight.
