Depends where you live really in terms of danger, I tend to go running around 10pm. In terms of what it does fitness wise, I wouldnīt say itīs any different.

It's only a bad idea if there are disreputable types around. I run at 4am. It sucks.

I use to run at night, but got annoyed by punks yelling hateful crap out of their car windows. Now I just go in the morning time.

The latest I go out running is around 9.30pm. Earliest I have hit the roads is 7am.

Must admit, I definitely prefer running at night - although doing it in the morning is also good as it means it is out the way.

i was running almost at midnight just yesterday, came home at 11.30pm.

the only problem is if it messes up your sleep.

Well I don't fall asleep till 3 am and I don't have school now so it's no problem.

If you feel more comfortable running at night then that's what you should do.

Everybody's different, we're not on the same biological clock. I feel drained and tired for most of the day, but once 8 or 9 rolls around I'm wide awake and feel the urge to workout, do my runs, etc.. and I have gone for many late night runs, because that's when my body feels the most energized.

Just because society has deemed the night to be a time to sleep or be in front of a tv doesn't mean your body feels the same way.

Running at night is great, go for it.

I think your best bet is to run at night if not in the morning. The air is a lot fresher without rush hour traffic running through it at the same time that you are.

One time this guy threw a full beer at me while I was running around 5:00 PM with my hoody on...Unluckily for him I recognized exactly who he was and as soon as I finished my run, drove over to his house, he opened the door and with no dialogue I body shotted him.(Lead left hook liver) I, personally, liked how I handled it. My girlfriend dumped me and told me I was psychotic, but that ***** was probably a lesbian anyway.

this was like six years ago, I'd have never done that today for fear of going to jail...

Just came back from running its 1:10 am. I went to the tracks but the doors were locked so I just started running through the streets and alleys. I met some drunks and stuff but it was pretty good. But I need to find some place where I could run. Does running on concrete damage your knees?

Wow nice work. That takes some dedication to get up so early and run!

Lol well i guess running at night your always going to approach some people hanging around.

I guess running on concrete isn't easy on your joints and knees, it's defiantly better to run on soft surfaces. However, having a good pair of running shoes can make all the difference and provide less strain on your joints.

I always run at night. Went at 11:30 pm last night, cop cars pull up to me and ask me what i'm doing once in a while but aside from that i never had a problem.

Personally I much prefer running at night... I do my running when I wake up in the morning though.

F*ck that. In my neighborhood that'd be too dangerous. (I always got a shank on me if I do HAVE to run at night)

I run at around 8-9am. That's when the goons ain't out to rob your ass.

But if your neighborhoods safe then why not? If I lived in a better neighborhood I would definitely run at around midnight.

I'm planning on going for a 3 mile run after boxing training tonight. I'll do a 3 mile run tonight, then another tomorrow night. Saturday and Sunday I will be having a few beers and eating what I want.

If you ever watch a mayweather 24/7 he runs early in the morning. However it might be because everyone knows him in Vegas and he just wants to get a workout in without getting bothered
