I usually run in the morning, before eating (or I might grab something light before running). What works well for me is to walk my kids to school, then run a loop that gets me home in roughly 3 miles. On the weekend I do a different route.

I was in a training clinic at my Y that met in the evenings (6 PM) and I liked that, but can't do it consistently (need to make dinner, or take someone to an event, or ... you get the picture). Plus it's dark, and I'm not keen on running outside in the dark.

I run at 5am on weekdays and 7am on weekends. I have to run on a somewhat empty stomach and my evenings are just packed with making dinner and time with my 5 yo son and husband. By 9pm I am TIRED! I can feel my energy growing though as I reconnect with running and biking. I really love it and it's nice to be back building my endurance. Although the scales say I gained a pound this week, I am going to stay focused.

I'm the same. . .I run when I have time. That's usually right after work in the evening. But if I know I'm going to be busy in the evening, I get up earlier in the morning.

I run when I have time. Right now, that's 7 AM or so Saturday morning, and after work 6 PM or so Monday and Thursday evenings. I'd technically have time Sunday or Friday, but I don't on Tuesday or Wednesday so Mon-Thurs-Sat is what works for three nonconsecutive training days.

I run in the morning as close to 8:30am as possible. I go to the gym to run and their daycare opens at 8:30. Since I have a toddler I can't go there any sooner. But I find it's the best time for me to run because I've had time to digest breakfast but it's not too late that I lose my motivation. Running in the morning works better to wakeme up than coffee! It gives me an awesome rush to get through the day. I've tried running in the afternoon and evening but it just doesn't feel the same and it always feels a lot harder at those times.

I live in GA so I run every morning in the AM when it's cooler - around 5:45a. I love getting out of the house and using that time to clear my head before I have to get ready for work.

I also run with a group on Wed eve at 6:30...the last few times it has been in the high 90's & even 102 once. I stuck it out but it was very hard.

I usually go with my sister to workout at the gym in the morning, and then do running after work. Since it's getting to the cooler part of the year now, it works out well. It gives me something to look forward to throughout the day. I go to a local conservancy that has a 4 mile loop. It's really the best time to relax for me.

The right time to run is the time that you can do it consistently!

As for me, that would be AM. Early AM! I also live in South Florida and it's cooler in the morning. I am usually out the door before 6am, earlier if I have a long run planned.

I am NOT a morning person. I've tried getting up before work and running, but can't keep it up for very long.

But, I love running in the evening and look forward to it.

Im finally in a routine and even enjoying running... didnt think I could do it but this program pushed me just enough and didnt scare me away!

I've been running at diff times- mostly morning.. sometimes afternoon if Im too busy...

Last week I was tired and wanted coffee in the afternoon and opted for the run instead and it worked!

Watching the CALORIE counter on the treadmill is helping.. I try to match or beat my last session-works for me.
