swim motivation

I know that to really do well with the swim part of the race, it's good to be in the water at least 3 days a week (keeps your body used to the feeling and all that). However, actually making it to the water is the hardest part for me. I love it once I'm in, and I love how I feel afterwards, but I just can't seem to convince myself to get up at 4 (or sometimes it must be 3) and out of a nice warm bed to get in a pool. I belong to a gym, and I pass one of 'em on my way to work (and it is open). I also have a pool at the apartment where I live (but it isn't open that early).  One day a week I have a friend to train with, so I've been good about swimming once a week recently. What kind of motivation do you guys find works for the swim part?
