Not a morning person


One of my aims this year was to try to get up earlier more often at weekends. Then I could run more parkruns, get my long runs done earlier and generally gain more of the day for getting things done.

However this weekend (and last) hasn’t been a great start. After my long saturday lie in yesterday I hoped to do better today. Unfortunately I stayed up late to watch The 51st State with the boys until 1am last night and therefore wasn’t up any earlier today. I seem to morphing into my teenage sons time zone spending daylight hours asleep and being awake all night. Help!

Out of all my 13 Janathon runs only 3 have been before midday with the earliest at 10.17am. So I still have a bit of a way to go to become a morning runner. In the meantime I seem to be enjoying my runs at dusk.

Will try harder next weekend….

Janathon day 13. Ran 4.75 miles at 16.09.

Janathon total… 58 miles.

  1. Is a parkrun what we refer to in the US as a trail run? I’ve seen a few references to parkruns by Janathon runners and wanted to confirm. Hope so because those are the best runs you can have.


  2. Yay mornings! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


  3. If it would help, we can make our run earlier πŸ˜‰

  4. Great run and miles. I’m with you, I’m not doing well at getting up and running early. So here’s to both of us being able to get the morning run in for the rest of Janathon!

  5. I don’t think I’ll ever be much of a morning runner…lunch times/early evenings are best. Bed is just too cosy πŸ™‚

  6. I like to run in the mornings but in the winter 10am is the earliest I can manage 😐 I do have the wonderfully effective alarm clocks called children so staying in bed as long as I’d love to on weekends is just not happening at the moment. And once I’m up, I might as well go for a run! πŸ™‚
