5:15am Wake Up Call

Today was "bring a friend to bootcamp" day for a co-worker of mine, and since we'd talked so frequently about my interest in it, I decided to give it a try.

Turns out....I loved it!

Granted, this was obviously my first day. I'm not sore yet. It's the only day in 6 months (maybe even a year!) that I've gotten up so early - 5:15am was my wake-up call. That's definitely doable. 4 days a week...I just don't know.

However, there has always been such a tug in me that has known that if I could wake up at 5am or so, I would have my kind of ideal morning. Today was it. I worked out hard (plus I got an early morning city view at Piedmont Park, where it's hosted). Treated myself to Starbucks. Spent some time in the Word. And even had time to eat breakfast with my husband. All before work!

Plus, I love the idea behind the specific bootcamp I participated in. It's called Bootcamp 4a Cause. These guys donate almost 100% of their profit to a local charity, including Piedmont Park Conservancy (giving back to the place they spend so much time in!).

They invited friends back tomorrow, and I think I might just give it another shot. Next session starts next week, and I'm really tempted to try it for a month. Anybody with me??!! Please?! :)

Well, not with you but I do 6am CrossFit 2x per week, so I was up at 5:15 with ya. I hate getting up, but once I'm up, it doesn't matter (I really hate getting up, period. I like to sleep.). And, it's so nice to get the workout out of the way in the morning! I say stick with it, but maybe 2-3 days per week. :)
