Day 7: Minor Adjustment

Wow. What a wonderful weekend but I am drained!

I had to modify my plan a tiny bit. I woke up at 6:30am on Saturday and 5:30am this morning. 

It is not quite "sleeping in" but it is not getting up at 4:30am either.

Waking up to workout out every day of the week has taken a toll on my body and therefore, I have made an executive decision to modify my plan just a bit. 

On weekends, and weekends only, if my body needs extra rest, I will not get up at 4:30am.  I will rest accordingly...but I will not over do it.  I mean, sleeping until 9am will only make the following week more difficult.  It will feel like starting over every time and that will defeat my purpose to adjust my clock.

Next up tomorrow: Masters class at 5am.  Alarm set for 4:30am

I had an amazing 10 mile trail run on Saturday and a fabulous 42 mile bike ride today. The farthest I have ever gone on a bike. Beautiful weather.  It is amazing how using your body to its potential and being out in nature can make one feel so alive.  Weekends are never long enough. 

Here goes another week.
