I start school in two weeks, so I won’t be able to start training until atleast 3:30ish if I run on the track at school (30 mins away from home). At earliest I would be done at 5:00, not getting home till 5:30.
So my problem is how to fit weights in… I can’t do it right after my running session becaues of the commute, but waiting till 9 is impracticle and impossible (gym hours). Can I put two hours inbetween running and lifting (7 PM) without to much problem?
during field hockey season i run into the same time problem with lifting- my solution was to go to the gym which is 10 times nicer than the weightroom at my school and lift when it opened at 6am. it was a grueling and sleepless period of my life… but worth the sacrifice.
the hardest thing about lifting first thing in the morning is getting your butt moving!
believe me i know, when i was at a previous college i had to hit the weights before classes 0700. man it stunk getting up, but the alternative to not showing up-getting booted- was far worse.
honestly, when you get there, personally i felt a sense of pride up on others for getting my work done before everyone else did.
also less distractions in the weightroom that early-big plus!
