I used to hate getting out of bed early on a Sunday. But when I started long distance running, I had to do that because starting early morning is the best when you run in a city full of cars and people and dust! In the first couple of years, it was hard. The alarm would ring at 5 am and instinct was to shut it and go right back to sleep. Plus, because I had to wake up early on a Sunday, Saturday nights which were earlier synonymous with late night get togethers suddenly became about sleeping by 9:30 pm.
