reverse the Status Quo:O)
The earliest I have ever run was setting off for 18 miles at 6 am That was in Italy, in the height of summer, so I was avoiding the heat. Usually my LSRs start around 9/10 back for a slow bath before lunch.
I like to run the cyclepath, it gets busy weekends with kids and adults on their bikes.
I love running early, best time of the day in my opinion, clean fresh air and traffic free, whether I run on the path or road.
The only problem with the path is, no lighting. Headtorch required for early runs
And ............. you have the rest of the day to do whatever you please
Far too early to be out and about, there's only one 5 o'clock and that's when I finish work. The other doesn't exist
The dog likes a bit of off road, then lanes on the long lead. My LSR are always lanes (no dog - she gets 10 mins before and a longer one in the afternoon). This time of year the lack of daylight can cause a problem, lSR has to be cut back.. that's OK the big events don't really start till March, anyway... Nov/Dec is a good down time for me.
Running in the dark.. no way!
I smashed the end of my radius ( Ithink.. the little one in the forearm) into pieces against the inside of my elbow when I tripped over running in the dark. Fool, i put my hand out to protect my fall. In those days I was doing 7 mm. It was not good.
I'm such a wuss, don't run in dark, don't run in cold, don't like crowds, have two months low mileage recovery... (carrying some weight mind).
Back on in January (promise!).
Still running is for fun, not a way of life (discuss).
Go for an ooh!
