And I look pretty happy for someone who ran mostly pain free. It usually is so hard for me to smile in the morning. It's like my facial muscles will not work until I have a shower, coffee and/or breakfast.
I think one of the reasons I am able to get up and run in the mornings is because my alarm really is not going off that much earlier than my normal waking time for work if I don't work out.
Morning workout day - Alarm set for 4:45 or 5am depending on length of run
Non-morning workout day - Alarm set for 5:45 or 6am
It really is just an extra 45 minutes to an hour of sleep that I am missing out on. I think waking up in the morning for a workout gets tricky when you try and wake up so much earlier than you are used to.
Plus easing into a morning workout routine helps make it easier and with all new things, the first week is always the hardest and most taxing on your body.

What time do you wake up for a workout compared to a non workout day?
