Tuesday 20th August, 3x7min at tempo effort

I didn't get to be as early as I would have liked last night..oh well! The alarm went off and I was still tired, but no excuse, right! It wasn't too cold, about 9 degrees celcius. I managed to run wihtout a long sleeve top or gloves. Nice one! 

I drove to gym and ran from there. There's a bike path nearby and the streets are nice and flat and relatively well-lit. Nice quiet roads too. I was starting on the tempo component of my training cycle, so just started with 7 minute 'intervals' at a not too uncomfortable pace. 

Running in the early hours gives me time to think and be with myself. Life is so busy and there is so much screaming for our attention all the time, it's nice to disconnect and be in the quiet space that is pre-dawn. Have you tried it before? I personally think early morning is the best time to run. The day is full of promise..who knows what it will bring!

What do you think about on your runs?
