|Did you say crack of dawn or butt crack of dawn? source|
So I got up early, went outside, and... drum roll please... felt BLAH. I was not shocked. I had 2-3 x 1 mile repeats on the agenda, with McMillan telling me I should be doing them in 7:06 (yeah right, I knew there was no chance of this). I figured 7:30 was more realistic. Well, after just ONE completed in a whopping 7:57, I had the worst side ache of all time, felt slightly nauseous, and knew this run was over. I trudged along in complete torture until I hit 3 miles, went home, and called it a day. Ugh. Lesson learned. AGAIN.
And what is that lesson? It's that I am just completely and utterly worthless in the morning until I've had a long hot shower, breakfast, and several cups of coffee. But after this, I am ready to go! Hello, work, can I please go for a run at 10:00am? Thanks. But since this isn't ideal, and since my work doesn't have showers, and since my work isn't in an ideal location for running (JMan has in fact, banned running around my work), a night runner I am (except on the weekends of course, when I can shower / eat / drink coffee BEFORE my run!). On my few attempts at morning runs (or when evening commitments require it) I usually feel terrible - sluggish and slow and it's COLD in the mornings! Other days I PLAN on being a morning runner but the snooze button is too tempting and my bed too cozy and luxurious.

When do you run? Butt-crack of dawn, afternoon, midnight, never? What's your preference and why? Do YOU, like Lil Brudder, have a heart of a champion?
