If you know me, you know I am NOT a morning person by nature! As a kid I missed the bus at least once a week because I could not get my little butt moving pre-dawn.
As I got older I chose swimming as my primary sport which consisted of early morning practices all week AND early morning meets every weekend. My body never adapted.
When I started my career as a personal trainer, I had to work when I was needed...before and after work. This meant many more years of 4am alarm clock to be excited to motivate tired clients by 5am.
And then as an adult I chose a hobby (triathlon) that training AND races typically cater to the early riser.
For big races, the transition area opens at 5am which means you have to wake up, eat, get ready, load all your crap, and travel to the venue all before sunrise. Still never became a morning person.
In fact, #357 reason why I never had kids was because the thought of having to get up early...and often...gave me massive amounts of anxiety!
