Happy Friday

Sorry Birkmyre and TurboElli, I must have taken your share of the early morning start.  Alarm was set for 6am but I woke at 5am.  Was back from my 7 miler by 6.30am & in work v.handy for 8am.  Not much company other than stalking cats, Milkmen and a couple of surpised bunnies.  Passed 1 Runner who was obviously just heading out, during my last mile - Nice

Feeling a bit creaky now, but picked up some nice snacks/lunch on the way to work & am finishing at lunchtime, with the lovely smug feeling that my LSR is in the bag ahead of any potential distractions from The Wine Fairy this evening.

First time in ages that it was still a bit dark & caught the gorgeous dawn colours - nice to have a reminder of things to look forward to during the darker mornings.

Have a good weekend, everybody

Managed to knock out 10 miles this morning. Wish I had got up a bit earlier then 5.30 though as it made getting ready for work a big rush!

Started off very cold this morning, being able to see my breath reminded me of the winter months of training.  Thankfully after a while it was back to a glorious summer morning.

Out of the door this morning at 04:30 for an easy 7.5 miler even though I spent last night in the pub with some rarely seen friends until 22:30.

Tomorrow is my mid morning LSR of around 13 - 14 miles.

 Glad to have so many up and out and running early. Kinda motivational !

Out of the door at 06.20 for a 15K long slow run this morning. Very grey and soggy this morning in Yorkshire!

Me too!

Up at 6am for a 10kish run for the 3rd time this week and always sets me up for the day. Although when I'm dragging myself out of bed I don't feel that way

Earliest I've ever got up was 2:30am !!! However it was completely unintentional.  I looked at the bedside clock and thought it had said 7:30 

It wasn't until I got back in I realised my mistake....

I love the stillness of the early morning.

If you people run that early in the morning before work don't you find by about 9 pm your knackered and ready for bed ?
08/08/2010 at 09:54

Yes, bed time is usually between 8:30 and 9pm for me, but sometimes my neighbours are active and being noisy so sleep is not always easy despite being desirable!

Ideally, going to sleep at that time means it is very easy to wake at 4 and be off at 4:30 am and I aim to maintain it over the winter.

I'm usually up the stairs by 10pm, but up at 6am every week day.  May sound a bit naff, but I've found that sticking to a regular alarm time then either run/cycle/early start at work allows me to set my body clock.  If 6am feels normal, then it's easier to get out for a run, rather than the alarm being too much of a shock to the system.  I occasionally go mad & treat myself to a 7,30am lie-in. 

I'm lucky that I work flexi-time, so having the option of starting work between 7.30am-9.30am does make things a bit easier.  On the days that I can't shift myself in the morning, I'll bagsie the 4pm finish, which means I have to get out after work (which can be a real effort).

My spelling (above)  not very good this morning either !
10/08/2010 at 09:35

4 miles at 4.45am!  Woke up just before 4am, snoozed for a while & told myself that might as well get up before fell asleep again, might even get to admire the sunrise to make the early start worthwhile. 

Didn't catch the sunrise but was spotted a couple of stars & the grass was very dewy, so felt like first taste of dark mornings.

Back before 6am & back to bed for an hour or so.

I'll probably be shattered for the next couple of days

Chucking it down this morning but just the sort of weather our springer spaniel enjoys.
10/08/2010 at 12:46
