is it bad to run in the morning and then again at night? sometimes it's too hot out for me to get in all my miles at once so i like to split them up between a morning and evening run....but i'm afraid that my body won't have enough time to recover from run to run and i'll end up hurting myself or getting burnt out
So does anyone know if running twice a day is good or bad?
I run twice a day about twice a week. I don't think that it has an adverse effect on training, and it might even be better, but don't quote me on that. I really like it, especially after hard days, because the morning run loosens up my legs, and so I feel better at night. You'd be surprised how quickly your body will recover, especially if you give yourself all day.
we have 2 run twice a day... its hard at first but then one u get use to it, its relaxing to me cuz my morning run is hard & at the end of the day, i have alota tress and stuff so then i take a easy run
Cross Country- Finally a use for Golf Courses!!!
Running twice a day is great for putting in the miles, but your gonna have to eat a bunch or after about a month you'll realize you lost like ten pounds! I once lost five pounds in one week from running twice a day, and I'm a skinny guy!

All the best runners will run "2 a days," so they can put in more miles. If the most you can run is 10 miles at a time... you'd be better off running 6 in the morning and 6 in the evening for a total of 12. Both my mom and my dad ran in the morning before they went to work, and then after work... They said it got them into shape really fast for X-country season.

I usually do an easy 15-20 minute slow jog in the morning. Then I go to XC practice in the afternoon where we do out hard workouts. I love to get the morning run in so I can get loosened up and get a really good stretch in. I would definitely reccomend a short easy jog in the AM.
