The next thing I am trying is a night run. Actually, an organized twilight 5Km race. The thought of running in the dark, through trails instead of on roads is exhilarating!
Night running is not new. As the days get shorter, I may extend my outdoor running into fall and the twilight hours. This will require some consideration to temperature and safety.
According to this study http://www.theaustralian.com.au/sport/sport-active/night-moves-the-benefits-to-running-after-dark/story-fnc9wiz4-1226649478126, running at night changes the way you run. When you cannot see the surface you are running on, you depend more on instinct to react to changing surfaces. When relying on instinct, it makes sense to wear a more minimal shoe, to feel the ground better. I like that!
