I can also give some advice from this mornings run. I *really* didnt want to go out there.... but just put one foot in front of the other and JFDI.

emmy:It takes practice and then becomes a habit if you do it often enough and give it time.

It is awful when I first wake up, but I have to admit that I always feel great by the time I get to work

Sorry for the late response, great advice, I've got a good idea of what I'm going to do from here on in. My body will catch up with the early rise I'm sure it will!!!!!!

Out at 5.40am this morning, a morning of 4s, four miles out, 4 miles back and saw 4 deer

Out for my second run this morning, all good. Not quite up to your level JF50, only 4k. Got a 10k in on Sun AM which i'm looking forward to.

Stuart it's still 4km more than most people probably sat in your office.  I always try to do a slightly longer one on a Friday morning, just means getting up a bit earlier.  Enjoy your 10km on Sunday

I love running really early in the morning! It's the afternoon ones after I'm tired from work that I dislike. Having said that, I would never do a reps/interval or fast session of any sort before 10am and a decent breakfast (althoughthis is a tiny lie as when time is very tight I have been known to occasionally do a fartlek quite early). I would go out with the aim of just running as I feel, that way there are no expectations to live up to and whatever you get out is an achievement.

In terms of racking up energy, if I am starving before a run, I find I can usually stomach a banana within 10 mins or so of running particularly if I'm taking it easy.

Thanks Jose, I'm kind of the same mind, I'm going to adapt my training so my early morning runs are recovery and easy runs.

Thanks for that, unfortunately i'm probably one of the more sluggish ones in my work, so always hearing stories various sporting adventures. The 10k went well achieving a 53.33 time, but my darned legs are a bit tired, so maybe need to put more effort into mile building. Have signed up to a half marathon in Nov with a work colleague, so have a good target. The only snag being, part of the bribery for me getting him to sign up for it, was i had to agree to taking part in 'Movember'. We shall endeavour to get all the other lads in work involved, with our team name being 'London's Hair Ambulance'. Should be fun, but itchy

I want to become a morning runner and wake up early but feel like a Zombie will give it a go as at the mo I sometimesi am out running at 21.00 hrs after shift work Perhaps then I will get a part in the film called "The walking dead" or is that "The running dead"

Ha ha tigerexile, not easy is it, I run @ 9pm too, get out when I can. Try and stick with the mornings and use the advice I got on here, it was a great help.
