You can do this with a diary sexp within org-mode. E.g., I used the
following for a class that I taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays from
January 8 through February 24:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
** Teach Course 1:20pm-2:35pm
<%%(let ((d (calendar-day-of-week date))) (and (or (= d 2) (= d 4)) 
(diary-block 1 8 2009 2 24 2009)))>
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I'm an elisp amateur, but I imagine you could create your example above
with the following:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
** Wake up 5:45am
<%%(memq (calendar-day-of-week date) '(1 3 5)))>
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Someone please correct me if I'm doing something wrong here.
