What time do you start? Because I’m sure setting an alarm and waking up but falling back asleep isn’t great for your body clock. (I generally feel worse anyway :/ ) If you need the sleep you need the sleep! Listen to body and don’t make yourself feel bad for hitting snooze.

I leave my house at 9:15. Have been setting an alarm at 7-7:15, but maybe getting everything ready the night before, waking up at 7:45, and heading out the door by 8 (I can shower at work) would be more effective...

I feel I have to make sure I get everything ready the night before whether I’m trying to train or not! Just makes mornings nicer. But yeah depending when you get to sleep the 7-7:15 might just be in the middle of a sleep cycle. Have you tried a sleep tracking app? I downloaded one a few years ago to try to work out a good alarm time for me if I went to bed at a certain time. You can also say you need to be up by a set time for some and it’ll set the alarm off at the best time in your sleep cycle for the time. Maybe worth a shot if you really feel like training in the morning?

Hmm okay I'll look into that! Any idea what the app was called?

Sleep cycle I think. Hope it might help because good sleep is important!

I use that one (Sleep Cycle), too. I'm happiest when I don't actually need it to wake up, but I appreciate that it has a wake-up "window" so I don't get jolted awake unless it's absolutely necessary.
