Picture taken on my morning run
So what are your favourite running conditions and times ?
When I started C25K it was during our first lockdown and most of my running was around 10:30 or 11:30 am
This was great as I didn't have to work , I could get up around 08:00 to 08:30, have a light breakfast and go out a couple of hours later !
We did however have some really warm days during that time and I often came back from my C25k run rather hot and sweaty !
But I thoroughly enjoyed it .
Later in the program and later in the year I was persuaded by my vrb Jools2020 to try an early run !
I did this and really enjoyed it once I'd got out of the door !
I found the getting out of bed and getting out of the door the hardest part !
But it was worth it , the runs were joyful.
So I now had early runs and mid morning runs in my toolbox 🙂
Then we come to the weather !
Again, talked into it by Jools 🤣 I went out about 10:30 one day while it was raining .
Did I like getting wet ? No !
However , once I WAS wet I actually enjoyed the run 😁
So we now have wet or dry , early or mid morning ! But I had never at this stage run in the afternoon or evening .
I have since done a mid afternoon just the once !
I had intended to run early but had a fight with the Duvet Gremlins ! And then after breakfast the weather wasen't looking too good but after lunch it cleared up and I was feeling guilty for not running , so, I gave time for lunch to settle and then went out around 3:30.
It was another enjoyable run !
Since all the lockdowns ended and I'm working again (part time 😁)
I notice im always going for morning runs !
I am also very particular regarding the weather !
For me the ideal is a dry morning sunrise run with a temp of around 13 or 14 degrees as I did today .
This is comfortable for me in thin shorts and a thin running vest (I know, fussy!) 😁
Having said that I also enjoyed my winter runs wearing a long sleeved top a thin running jacket and tights and gloves , YES , Tights 🤣
They are so comfortable to run in when the temp is around freezing 😁
So there we are ! Men in tights 🤣
But still no evening runs !
The important thing is whenever we run and in whatever weather , ENJOY IT ... After all , that's what it's all about isn't it 😁
Happy running folks ! 👍
