Am I an afternoon/evening runner trapped in the mind of a morning runner?
I always run in the early morning, because I don't trust myself to go later on in the day. Besides, I suppose I want to get running out of the way, so I can check it off my to-do-list. Even though I know running is supposed to be something I do for fun, it's also something I feel I háve to do.
Anyway, sometimes circumstances conspire and then I find myself running later during the day. And whenever I run in the afternoon or evening I'm always pleasantly surprised by how much easier it feels than during my early morning runs. I'm faster, and I'm enjoying myself much more.
Like yesterday. I had convinced myself I didn't have to run that day, but then the sun came out and my body started to itch for a run. Before I knew it it had dressed itself in my running skirt and top, and there it went. Galloping off into the sunset! It felt great!
But even though I know running in the afternoon and evening is way more enjoyable, still I run in the early mornings… What ís that?!
I feel like my body is indeed trapped in the mind of a morning runner.
Can anybody relate to this? What's the best time of day for you to run?
