When do you run?

Postby Fjodo » Tue Mar 02, 2010 3:04 pm

Hi everybody,

I will have to do loads (!) of work during the next following weeks and most probably won't find the time to do any sport at all. So I began to wonder: when does everybody else run? I mean, most of the people on here have a job. Do you run in the morning, in the evening, in the lunch break, in the night? Maybe you can show me how to put a little bit exercise in a schedule as heavy as mine. :)


This is my running log. Look it up! I appreciate any kind of response. Just try to be not way too hard, I started only recently.

Usually go running after work around 4.30-5.00 pm. This fits me the best as I have big lunch at around 2 pm. In weekends I go running during the day. First big breakfast and 2-3 hours later when I feel like it I go running.

How far is it to work? I often run to work and back home again - failing that, evenings and weekends.

work aprox 45 hours in a normal week and go to training afterwards. 5x a week.

running in the morning is nice as well.

think it's mainly a priority question.

I swim in the AM, and run in my lunch break.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

I usually run before work and during lunch if a double is necessary. Although, I will run after work if I couldn't drag myself out of bed...sometimes as early as 4:30.

Although, when I'm not training for a marathon, I don't have to get up AS early!

Agree with runner, it's a mainly a priority thing.
