4:45 am; Wham! Newspaper thuds against front door. I sit up in bed, wide awake two hours before the alarm is scheduled to go off silently cursing our newspaper delivery boy. Kiss your Xmas tip goodbye, buddy!
5:15 am; Up I get. Can’t get back to sleep so I might as well knit something. Coffee in hand, I make my way wearily to the couch. Nothing too challenging; just simple back and forth knitting.
7:00 am; The rest of the household awakens and the morning bustle begins.
9:00 am; I hit the gym, hoping that a good workout will energize me for the day ahead. It’s Phase 1, Workout B, 3rd time through. Upped the time on my planks, increased the weight on my dead lift, had to sub in real pull-up for the inverted row (all the squat racks were taken). Not bad! Felt pretty good, all things considered.
2:00 pm; Crash. A quick nap on the couch followed by a good strong cup of espresso and I’m ready for the afternoon crunch.
5:30 pm; Off to teach my Bosu class. Feeling a bit wobbly; could be either the poor night’s sleep or the dead lifts I did earlier in the day. Stretching at the end felt great!
Early to bed tonight! Looking forward to rest day tomorrow…
