Very first morning run

I went to bed last night determined to get up and complete W5R2 this morning before work. Missing accomplished! I have never been a morning person but felt invigorated and accomplished that I got out the door! Maybe it will become my new standard.

Yes, I think it will be good to find my 'happy place', whether that be when the sun rises or sets.

Good job. Glad it worked out well for you, I always have more energy half an hour after a run than I had before it.

I do feel energized after a run but have never been much of a morning person. Maybe that will change with my new exercise routine!

I do a mix of morning and evening runs depending on what I’ve got on that day. I like both but morning runs always seem to set me up for a good day so I’ll do those where I can. It definitely makes me feel a bit more energetic and I’m also super happy to have clocked up 3, 4 or 5 thousand steps on my Fitbit by 7am 🙂
