Report 14 stone and need motivation in Start Here! Posted January 4, 2015 Mavster, I hear you! With my schedule, waking up early and running in the morning is the only way I can get my workouts in consistantly. Once the time changed and it was really dark, and getting colder, at 5:30 in the morning, and the bed was nice and toasty warm, I had a lot of trouble getting up and actually slipped out of my routine. It took a while, and signing up for my next race, to get back into the groove. Good luck pushing through!
