I leave the house at 5:30 get home between 6 & 6:30 (including train commute)
I assume there is a reason you can't take lunch? I used to be the same: there would be lulls but an hour straight was tricky, thats changed now so i usually get 3x45min-1hr runs done midweek.
I understand about the driving, so running part of the commute isn't an option. But is there a station that does offer a direct service that you could run to? Long shot I know.
You don't say if you have children. I assume so, as there must be a reason you can't run more in the evening. Luckily mine are a bit older now, and both do a lot of sport, so I can take youngest to swim training Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday night and can do up to 90 minutes while she is training (does vary as sometimes Mrs D will take/collect, but opportunity is there)
Thursdays provide a long window - youngest runs while I coach then have 90minutes while eldest has hockey. Sure it means a 10pm finish but I get arguably up to 3 hours training time.
Much the same at weekends - swimming is a 3hr session so I can run while she's there - eldest will have club or county hockey fixtures, sometimes both, which provide up to 90 minutes 'run time'.
Needs to be carefully managed and there is usually a kit bag in the car!
Best of luck!
