This can’t be healthy

Waking up early
Endure painful exercise
This can’t be healthy

  1. Lots of people are
    Sweating before 6am
    It’s called commitment

    The payoff is great
    Fit, firm, stronger, leaner, well
    Yes, it IS healthy

    • Dress too tight last week
      Guess what I’m wearing today
      Will stop complaining

      (that last line was a total lie. Expect future complaints. That workout was a b&tch. Hmmm. That was fast. I didn’t know my next complaint was going to be in the immediate future.)

    I feel the same way – especially days like today. I came in from my run and I couldn’t even get my shirt off. I was that sweaty. Why do we get up at 5 in the morning to run? Because we love it. Pain is just a sidebar.

    • I agree with the running part and getting fresh air. My problem is I want to get faster and stronger so I’ve been doing Insanity in the mornings for strength training. It’s working but it’s killer. That said, I know I’ll be happy about it this weekend when I tackle the hills in my Ragnar Relay run.

      I wish I could get stronger by staring at the ceiling.

        Yeah, me too. Like your blog. Keep up the good work and thanks for inspiring.

      • Thanks for reading and commenting. I post contributing haiku as well so feel free to try your own and submit it anytime! It’s fun and sometimes helps distract me from counting the miles when I have a boring run

        I’ll try that. I’ve just gotten into Haikus. They are fun to do.
