Ofcourse, in Summer the tone is "well done, you", in bad weather the majority question my sanity 

Haha that's so true.

I have been asked for directions in the past and you have to wait a few second to get your bearings, "Now where the hell was that place?" you're stood there looking completely inane and tell them  incoherent directions

I love morning runs though, this morning I woke up at 5:30 and out the door for 6:30. I'm so jealous of you guys who get to run with your dogs. I have to wait until next year for my Vizsla and I'm so excited!

Do any of you guys feel knackered and in need of a nap say around 4:00 though?

That's one of the bonuses of doing most of my runs on The Prom - it's mostly pedestrianised, so I encounter very few motorists, lost or otherwise.

I used to run with my parents' Heinz 57 when I was training for the Great North Run in 2001 & 2002.  She loved the extra outings & barely break into a trot.  She was great company & ofcourse this was pre-iPlod days.  When my lottery win comes in & I can jack in work, I'd love a dog - not possible at the mo', so v.jealous of those Runners with canine company.

3.30pm - 4pm is when I usually fancy a siesta.  There's many a time when I've had a short nap on the bus after work.  There was a time when I'd be catching a few sneeky ZZZs as I'd been partying the previous night/was playing out that night, now it's running induced (I do still manage the occasional heavy weekend, tho' - honest).

God no, I'd rather run in the heat than wake up earlier than I need too.

Get up at 6 during the week for my commute to London. Come the weekend my body still thinks its the working week so Im up early for my long runs. You certainly avoid maniac drivers early morning. 

Can't bear the thought of running during my lunch break at work as there are too many maniac tourists on the pavements so I run in the evenings.  These runs tend to be slower as my energy has been zapped.

I love running early in the morning (usually out at 6am).  Too much traffic later on and too many people about.

That's a shame. Hope you get it sorted out soon and get back to enjoying the early mornings.

Today:

6am

6.3 miles

In silence.

13/07/2010 at 08:19
Same as above.  6am  and 6.3 miles.  It was cooler this morning so it was easy.  If I had, had a little more time I would have got a bit further.
13/07/2010 at 08:41
I've joined the club too.  I am up by 5.00 a.m. and running at 5.20 a.m 4/5 times a week.   This I have been doing for the last 7 years.  And I am not thinking about giving up yet.

People - do you eat anything prior to your morning run?

I read from somewhere that having even a tiniest amount of food would be better for fat burning capacity, energy, etc

However I simply cannot eat if I run that early as it just starts off my digestion and my running will consists of nothing but loo breaks.
I'd have to leave running at least for couple of hours after eating.

13/07/2010 at 10:25
No, nothing to eat for me.....just a glass of water before I leave the house and a bowl of porridge when I get back.
13/07/2010 at 11:57
That's pretty much what I do as well.

I suffered from massive hangover yesterday and decided to tackle with 7 mile run this morning. I'm so glad I did. Was back home before 7am and feel fantastic!!!

Loving the fresh air!

I get up at 5am on two days during Mon- Fri and run 6-8 miles before work, and I'm always out by 7am on a Sunday to run 10-15 miles. Always on an empty stomach. I run on a treadmill in my work gym on the three other work week days and I have Saturdays off

I always take a drink with me, but I daren't have one before I go because that would defo mean a loo stop somewhere. I have some routes where having a wee is no problem, but other more urban routes where I can't.

I always exercise in the mornings, on the odd occasion that I've run in the evening I find my legs feel much heavier.

Also there is less traffic about in the mornings. I love running through the empty streets.

I prefer to run in the morning (although not always as early as some of you on here!)

I don't eat anything before I run but I always clean my teeth before I go. This wakes me up, plus, I don't like the thought of huffing and puffing with morning breath. My OH takes the p*ss though - am I alone in this habit?
