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.
