Quite the reverse. In daylight I focus on the horizon - or equivalent - and set myself the target to getting to a certain point in a set time. In darkness the distance seems stretched out precisely because I can only see as far as my head toch allows. I also go slower because I am less certain of my footing and also - if I am on a trail rather than road - I am worried I might miss my turning, even on a familiar route.
