I've always been a morning person so another 5:30 runner here I'm dead after 8pm so evenings are a non starter. Have to have a coffee first then out the door. Best time of the day. Usually see a couple of other runners including crossing paths with my daughter who goes out even earlier than I do.
Beautiful photos Chris - what camera do you use?
Super pics of the best time of day.
I sometimes finish wo*k at 0200 then run 15m along the canal back to the car by torchlight. It can be quite spooky & my colleagues don't understand. They are usually still drinking when I get home.
I was always an evening runner (when I first started it was dark so no one could see me,bonus!), I couldn't understand why on Earth someone would want to get out of bed early just to run. I did try it, once, and hated every step of the way plus I was starving so had no energy.
However, lately work has been hectic so the only time I can run is in the morning. Tried it again and found it was OK, did it a few more times that week and actually enjoyed the peace and tranquility, only seeing cyclists on their way to work or other runers. Now I thoroughly enjoy 6am runs. But only 3 times a week!
Went out at 5.30 after the idiots next door finished their party.
Think I could get into the early stuff as I had bags of energy, although it could have been the adrenaline as I was fuming.
mornings def work for me , like a lot of mums its difficult to get out after work due to kids/meals/baths etc. my friend and i ran all through winter setting out as soon as it was light enough to see our feet in front of us! like someone else mentioned, non-runners dont understand why you would want to get up on a freezing morning on a weekend to run at 7am, but i tthink its great.
i dont run with an ipod as i love the peace , the wildlife waking up i get to see, and being part of that group of people whom you nod and gasp 'hello' to when you are out at that bizarre time of day. sometimes i do run midday time if its only time avaliable to me , but its really not the same.
join the morning gang everybody-its another world!!
I'd a lie in this morning
Got Mrs B from a works BBQ then blethered to oldest son when we got in. Normanal service resumes again 'at stupid o'clock' on Monday morning.
Up even earlier than normal, cold out though. Anyhow, mine done and dusted, not as many as Corinthian, but 2 1/2 hrs out there. No time to take photos though. . .
I couldn't agree more. I go out at 06:15 (after half an hour waking up time) for three mornings during the working week. At the weekends it is usually between 8 and 9 am though.
Still quiet and all the neds are in their beds till lunchtime sleeping off their hangovers.
When I get home from work at 7:30 pm I haven't eaten since 12:00 and am usually hungry. I never really feel hungry in the morning and have to force myself to eat a couple of bananas after my early morning runs.
As far as being worried I would think it is a lot safer at that time than running in the eveniing. It is also a lot safer running off road at any time rather than running around streets full of dodgy characters.
can't match some of the craziness on here, but did gte up at 6am to run 16miles at 7am today. That strikes me as fairly crazy, and would be incredibly crazy to any normal people, but on this forum I think it's pretty standard fare
