Due to lack of tine in the evenings, I went for a run this morning - I have ATR in 3 weeks so I need to be fitter for then. (I've only been managing 3 miles 2-3 times a week, whereas I find I only really improve if I'm doing that sort of distance 3-5 times a week) My usual pace on an evening run (After work, about 6:30-7pm) is about 7 min/mile for the first mile or so, 7:30 on a bad day - this morning it was 8:05 which even allowing for the fact I've been slack recently is cr*p. (Only time I've been slower is 48 hours after giving blood!) I'm also hurting a lot, particuarly my shoulders, which I've never had any problems with when running. So, is a run in the mornings a bad idea fitness-wise or is it something I'll get used to? Anything else I should be doing, like more stretches/warmups if I'm running in the morning instead of the evening?
