Oooh Fetch, you've proper cheered me up! There is light at the end of the tunnel :-) I am looking forward to getting my dose of vitamin D while running without being dressed like either a deep sea fisherman to ward off the torrential rain or an arctic explorer to ward off the blizzards, I am looking forward to people everywhere being more cheery after coming our of hibernations, I am looking forward to some foliage and skylarks on my runs.

Thank you Fetch :-)

I must be the only one pissed off that my early morning run/ride is plunged back into darkness for a while.

It is a bit of a pain for you early risers - but I've just looked, and within four weeks, you're back to where you started in the mornings.

Being able to run on the paths, having a bigger choice of routes because I feel safer out by myself.

:-) Midweek club training is 7pm - we're a country club, so being able to run without head torches and less chance of being mown down by passing cars, trucks or tractors.
:-) Possibility that it won't be horizontal sleet/snow on running to work in the morning, or on a weekend run for that matter. Spring, what spring?!
:-) Being able to see where my feet are landing on runs very early before work (though mostly light now, unless starting very early) and anything later than about 6pm after work. Running on canal, hills, or country roads there are many perils under foot!

Yay to BST! Yay to Spring! Yay to Runny Britain! (If this was Australia you'd have to lie down in a fridge, cos it's too hot to run!) :-)G

I'm with you MPH - have to get used to colder and darker morning runs for a few weeks!

I guess a good thing is that we can go for our usual morning runs then, if we feel up for it later, enjoy another run in the evening - with both in daylight!

Changing back to some of may favourite routes for midweek runs - no longer restricted by street lighting as lots have already said; less kit & caboodle for each run - hat, gloves, jacket, lights & base layers - wearing my capris tights again. More to look at during the daylight runs - spring flowers, tree blossom, a woodpecker to listen out for, bluebells, the changes in the fields in terms of crops, birdsong and all that jazz :)

Depends on whether you are glass half empty or glass half full. The other way we early risers can look at it is that we get 2 lots of sunrises!
