Dad tip #51: 5:00 am is the perfect time to exercise

Okay, I have no idea if the title of this post is true, but I'm going to try to get my @$$ up tomorrow morning to find out.

It's been more than six months since I've been on a regular exercise schedule -- no kung fu, no running, no basketball, no weights -- and I've got the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge coming up in a couple of weeks. Sure it's just a 5k and you're only able to walk the first half mile because it's so crowded, but I still want to put in a respectable time.

When, I was in London on business, I managed to hit the treadmill for a few miles, but that's nothing like running outside. I've also recently caught up on some physical therapy on my ankles, but I don't think that's doing a whole lot for cardio or endurance.

And so, with my baby boy waking up at 6:00 in the morning and being busy at work until 6:00 in the evening; and then dinner, my son's bedtime routine, and then a few precious minutes with my wife, the day is over. By then I'm bushed, so 5:00 am it is.

I'll let you know how that goes. (Ugh!)

BTW, I'm pretty much resigned to walking the CCC at this point. And I'm OK with that.

Woo hoo! Got up at 5:30am, did about 2.8 miles at about an 8 and half minute pace.

But now my left ankle is KILLING me.

Right ankle's fine, though.
