I think the trick is not going to bed too early. I called it a night around 9:15 PM and was up at 3:20 AM, but I lingered in bed until 3:45, which for some reason, seemed more reasonable. Had some cereal and juice and then spent nearly an hour reading. Then it was off to the gym for 40 minutes on the elliptical. Getting to the halfway mark seemed to take forever but once I got over the hump, things seemed to move more quickly. My body felt good this morning, no aches or pains. After the elliptical I did one full group of chest exercises (and crunches) in preparation for the full strength workout tomorrow.
