The ReBirth

I awoke at 0330 this morning from one of those dreams you don't want to leave. Usually, I can tie my dreams to something that has occurred, or someone I talked to, or something I read. However, I still can't figure this one out.

Lately, I have been waking up early (0330 or so) very hot and sweaty, and awake. 0330 is a shitty time to be awake. Its too early to get up and if I go back to sleep I am just at REM before my alarm goes off at 0450. However, this morning I did it up.

I made some coffee and drank some water as I read the news and some of my favorite blogs. Finally about 0500 I hopped on the trainer for the first time in weeks and did about an hour. I have busted my bike computer so I am not sure how far I rode. I kept my HR under 140 (138 average) for the hour. So based on my lack of riding, I probably did about 16 miles. It was great to work up a good morning sweat and get the heart working and clear the mind. It is now time for the serious training to begin.

WOW, 0330?? I must give you credit!! My alarm went off at 0500 for a 90 minute trainer ride before work and I could not get my lazy ass out of bed. Now I need to bring my bike to work and hope we have an easy day.

Great start on getting back into gear! 330 is insane. I think I went to bed at 130!

Keep up the good work :)

So what's the dream, man?? You cannot just allude to it and how it prompted you to get out of bed, and then leave us hanging! :)

Hot in the mornings, ha? Wonder if that'll EVER happen here. We woke up to more fresh snow in Wisconsin.

good grief, it sounds like menopause and hot flashes. I'm feeling your pain of waking up at odd hours of the night in a cold sweat.

Great job getting up and getting on the bike. It's tough some days. 3:30. Ouch. I feel your pain. I have been waking up at 4:00 lately. Too early to get up but almost time for the alarm.
