Here is a beautiful view of my local park I captured on my phone when out running on Wednesday around Catton Park.
I’ve read that it’s best to mix up the times of day when you run for best effect. For me the reality is that with a busy job and young kids I tend to run in the mornings, and these days that means around 6.30am to 7am weekdays or around 8am weekends.
Having said that, whenever I’ve been training for a race I’ve tried mixing it up with evening runs or runs close to race time – so around 11am when preparing for the Norwich half marathon. One guy I know runs at 10pm after the kids have gone to bed – but that sort of time doesn’t work for me, though I’ve been tempted a couple of times. With the clocks going forward I’ve been really keen to go for an early evening run, if I could only finish work in time!
But what’s your favourite run time and why? Take part in the poll or feel free to leave a comment.
