So I've made it to the end of week 1's runs. They weren't as bad as I thought they may be although I'm definitely nervous about upping it to 90 seconds of running!
I almost thought at one point that I would never make it to run the 3rd run of the week. Everything seemed against me! My run was scheduled for Friday last week. I woke up with a readiness to do this and an eagerness. I had a number of errands to run first before I could go out and the dog had to go to the vets. This was all fine until ... in the middle or my errands, I tripped over, catching my foot on the pavement, ripping the sole of my trainer away from the top of my trainer. This was so annoying! But I was going to see my parents that afternoon, surely they would have glue to fix it. Sure enough they did, although I left my trainers there by accident. Anyway, one thing after another, I eventually got my trainers back today and managed to go for week 1, run 3. Very happy!
So in the process of running Week 1's runs, I've tried different times of the day to run. Currently, I've had the luxury of having a few days off so was able to try running in the middle of the day, I've also woken up super early before work to go for a run, and I've also gone for a run when I've got home from work in the evening before tea. I don't particularly dislike any of the different times I've gone running but I can definitely see pros and cons about running at different times of the day. While running before work was refreshing and great to help me wake up, will I always manage to wake up at 5.30 to enthusiastically go for a run? Today I managed to go for a run when I got home from work, but my husband played a large role in that by helping me find the motivation to get out the house and obviously, while having a life of leisure would be amazing, I don't normally get much time during the day to go for a run!
So, thoughts please. When do you run? Why do you run then? What are your pros and cons of running at that time?
