Daylight savings time again.

Daylight savings time starts tomorrow for many of us (don’t forget to set your clocks forward 1 hour tonight before bed!), and my cardio duration is increasing to 40 minutes on non-training days. Because I have a highly sensitive internal clock and my entire morning schedule is very regimented and tightly packed, this is a 1-2 punch for someone like me.

I never set an alarm to get up in the morning because my internal clock is very good at reminding me when it’s time to get up, eat and go to bed. It’s nearly impossible for me to oversleep, as I have a great pair of backup “alarms”: my dogs do not like to eat even one minute past their usual time, which is 6:30 AM. The dogs will adapt to the time change on the first day; I always take considerably longer.

What I’ve been doing this past week is getting up 30 minutes earlier than normal. The dogs are now waking me up at a little before 6:00 AM, and hopefully this will make the transition easier for me. Some of you have no problem making the adjustment, but “losing” an hour really throws me for a loop. I like DST, and I like having more daylight hours, but I wish we’d just stay with it year-round.

OK, I have lots to do today, so I need to get my cardio done, eat, shower and get things moving…

Thanks for stopping by – enjoy your Saturday!
