I am curious: would you able to focus on intensive reading after that? So far, I have found that I need to exercise later in the day because once my adrenaline gets going, I can't seem to concentrate, but I do a lot of reading. If I were doing things other than reading, it would be fine. It bugs me because I want to exercise earlier, but haven't had much luck with it. I keep hoping there is a trick to it.About an hour on the speed bag this morning ... I love getting up in the morning, having coffee, and heading to the garage to beat on that thing.
