This week's Twitter round-up mostly centres on getting up early. You may think that cricketers do this because they're productive, successful, driven people. In reality, it's usually just that they've forgotten to change their alarm clock or something.
The dish
If you eat meat, it's important to remember that animals don't come in delicious head-free form.
The early morning fitness regime
Two key points here: One, "contemplating" isn't the same as "doing". Two, "still in bed" isn't the same as "up early".
Here's how you get up early.
The joke
An astronaut. Might not work in your accent.
The practical joke

Life with Kemar Roach
Brace yourself for some serious ups and downs. It is ALL GO in the world of Kemar Roach…
Relentless excitement. His liberal use of capital letters and exclamation marks is entirely justified. He doesn't say how early his run was, though. Bet it wasn't 4.15am early.

Rock and roll.
What's your philosophy?
Three pieces of advice this week…
Three catchy, memorable pieces of advice, each of which would make any sane person groan.

You could lie there thinking about going for a run. Or why not get in one of your five a day?
