i used to go running round the " penicuik triangle " every morning for several months on and off for several years, the route is 3 k and i'd get up at 6am EVERY morning for several months and run before breakfast.
BELIEVE ME it's A LOT easier 1 1/2 to 2 hrs AFTER you've eaten and i'd say to make sure you adhere to this as it can be dangerous to exercise without having eaten for a while beforehand.
pre breakfast training IS NOT as enjoyable IS NOT safe and will just PREVENT ADHERANCE to a training routine.
try doing this if you want but if you do, please compare your same route times with your after breakfast, after lunch and after dinner times as well as your mood and energy levels in a food mood and energy diary.
please let me know how it goes if you survive, don't break your leg / ankle and or can be bothered!
Hello, I want to do the next program: http://www.t-nation.com/findArticle.do?article=06-025-diet
Which implies to do 1 hour of pre-breakfast cardio every other day. But I don't want to get up 1 hour before I need to get up normally, can I switch it to 30 mins every day?
This would mean an equal amount of cardiotime spent, altough the plasma glycerol won't be as high.
