What time of day do you work out? I like to work out in the evening, a couple hours after dinner. That way everyone has settled down for the day, and I get some peace. I can't seem to do it mid-afternoon to early evening because everyone is wound up, and my 2 y/o and 4 y/o like to act up because Mommy's busy.

I can't seem to get out of the bed in the morning because of the sleep-pattern that the rest of my family has...they keep me up at night until midnight or so, and I have to leave the house about 7:30 to get to work. So, getting up in the morning with enough time to workout just isn't feasible right now. (Although I would love it!)

So, what time do you work out?

I usually work out around noon, before lunch. I'm at home during the day until January (when I start school again), so I guess then it will either be early morning or after school.

Right now I am nursing an injury, but when I work out I break my sessions up. I workout 5 days a week and my routine is as follows and it applies to each of the 5 days -

1:30pm - 30 minutes cardio/weight interval
4:30pm - 30 minutes cardio/weight interval
7:00pm - 30 minutes cardio/weight interval

And the next part I will add only because I have had others on this forum try to "attack" my "intense" schedule...the above schedule only applies to me and I am in no way, shape or form trying to suggest anyone else should or needs to workout according to my schedule.

I like to workout in the morning, however, I have been known to procrastinate until right before bed . It seems the earlier I get to it the less likely that I'll put it off or something else will interfere. But some days I get up before 7am and I am gone for half the day, so its closer to 2pm.

First thing in the morning for me -- I'm an early bird and it works best for my schedule.

Generally @ 7-8pm on weekdays. Ideally I'd like to go to the Y at 5pm, but so does everyone else so I've found later time works better. On the weekends it depends on the activity and the outside temps. I used to get up pretty darn early on Sundays to get in my hiking when temps were in the nineties. Now that fall is here, the afternoons are more temperate.

Just after work - I get out between 4:30pm and 6pm most days.

I'm not good at really early mornings... I get up at 6am for work and that is just about perfect for me, any earlier and I feel like crap. Also, this lets me exercise at work (at one of the 4 campus gyms), then go straight home to shower.

I work from home, so I use my lunch hour. If I have more than an hour going on that day, I typically start in the AM before work with part, and finish up on my lunch hour. Then I eat lunch at my desk while working.

Onederchic - 90 min a day isn't that extreme! I pretty much am always between 75-120 min a day, with 1-2 rest days a week. Whatever works for you!

Unfortunately stuck at 7:30 - 9pm, and having to go straight to bed afterwards. Still trying to figure out how to "decelerate" so that I can go to sleep, because workout nights generally beget sleepless nights. :P If the pool were open at 5:30am, I would be ALL over it.
