Training "schedule"

So for a while back in June and July I was doing pretty good at getting workouts in the morning before work.  I usually got 3 to 4 during the week in and did a decent job on the weekends getting up early before the house was moving.

As the temps have lowered and daylight is harder to come by with sunrise later and sunset earlier, I find it hard to get my happy butt out of bed.  Don't get me wrong, I'm all about getting my swim, bike or run on, but I wish it was between the hours of 7am to 7pm.  I do get some lunch workouts in, but eliminating AM workouts just makes everything that much more cramped.

List of things giving me AM workout block and possible solutions:
  1. Later sunrise - can't really control that.
  2. Cooler temps - need more layers of clothes, up earlier, arg.
  3. Cooler temps in bedroom that make those covers EXTRA comfortable - we have a programmable thermostat.  Maybe I'll get that set to raise the temp to like 80 so I'm hot, sweaty and can't sleep at 4am.  I wonder how The Wife would appreciate that....
  4. Just plain tired - get to bed earlier.  Easier said than with chasing two kids until 8:30 and them needing to get stuff around the house done.  It's hard enough with The Wife and I trying to track down the kiddos at night.
  5. Work - if only I could do work whenever I wanted.  The whole 7:30am - 5:30pm deal cramps my style.  Ya know?  If only I could get my 45 in whenever it fit the schedule.  Have WORK run around LIFE, but I don't think that will happen.  =)
Any thoughts out there for you working family stiffs trying to make a go at the multisport life?
