Just to put my two pence in...yep I do this too.  I dont have family commitments I just find early mornings the best time to run.  I do 9 miles before work and go along the canal and see so much wildlife - its lush.  Spesh as I think these days in England its the only time you see the sun !

I get up around 5am and set off about 6am as I spend time stretching and warming up before I leave.

I love it and its so nice to hear that Im not the only crazy one - actually looking at this, im not really that crazy - some of you set off at 4.30 am !

welcome Tanya!

Hey ! I am always about looking in - but rarely post.

Thank you for the welcome x

Welcome Tanya, there's more than early starts that can be included in the crazy bracket on this thread

Thank you !

I will (in between being hard at work of course )

Running has become one of my most favourist thing to do (I bore my g/friend so much about it - its all I talk about)  So its nice to find like minded peeps who understand the enjoyment, the thrill, the challenge and pain of running ! Lol x

Tanya: Of course

Morning all, out at 5am for a 9 miler, 5 at tempo, too dark at first to see any wildlife, too tired after the tempo to notice any wildlife, daft way to wake up, two more weeks and I'll be back to casual jogging

morning all

slept in a bit this morning, going to take it easy today anyway - yesterday I did loads of squats etc in the gym and when I went on the turbo in the evening my legs felt knackered!

taking the kids out to clumber Park later with their bikes though

birky - I'll have a read of that in a minute

About 5M off road this morning. Cold, dry, no wind. Not a bad run

NW: 1 French food van, 1 Porsche, 1 cyclist, 5 or 6 areoplanes, 1 squirrel, 1 runner doen on main road (wellpavement)

Matsh: no probs, hope you enjoy the read,

How do you do this?! I just can't seem to work it out so that I am in a fit state to run in the morning. Morning runs for me just go really, really badly. I have no energy, and I am so slow (I'm hardly fast anyway) and feel so bad that even a 5k is a struggle. 

Running in the morning would be so nice from an organisational point of view but I just can't find a way to make it doable or enjoyable!

Dean: Welcome.


05/04/2013 at 16:24

Thank you.

I probably should have said 'Hello' first!  I've been a member for a while now but never really posted before. I needed some motivation a few weeks back and I actually open my mouth (metaphorically speaking) a little more now.

welcome dean

your body gets used to the early morning runs if you persevere, just stick with it

06/04/2013 at 07:25

Morning you lot

45mins Steady  mixture of paths and off road

NW: 1 owl, 1 Morrisons Van, 1 Kingsmill Van, 2 cats,  2 planes, 2 cyclists

PW: 1 car

Cold, frosty but sunny up here.

Dean  and Tanya: NW=Nature Watch, its what you see (if anything unusual) when out. PW=Plod Watch. We have  a few variations.

The Owl I see daily I nicknamed him 'Ovett'. He's the unofficial Stupid O Clock Owl

 As I said before we're a bit mad on here...
