    For me, after a 10km jog, i will feel tired about an hour after the run, need to take a nap after that.

    depends on:
    1. fitness level + distance you decide to jog
    2. nutrition during a long slow run
    3. nutrition after a long run

    it really depends on your fitness levels.

    that said, most schools of thought would not recommend the former.

    after i do a 12km run ( i only have time to run in the evenings after work) i will be sooo awake that i have problems sleeping.

    i used to run that distance in the mornigns before work, and that made my day so much more alert...

    Keep to a certain routine. Your body should adjust.

    I usually jog in the evenings.

    from my experience it depends. If you breath properly during the process you should feel more alert (it is an 'oxygenated' activity - you take in more oxygen)...

    Jogging makes me feel hungry, the more I jog, the hungrier i am, the hungrier i am the more i crave for food, the more i crave for food, the more i will eat after the jog, i more i eat after the jog, the sleepier i get after the meal.

    Therefore jogging = sleepy.

    To conclude, dun jog in the morning, it will make you sleepy for the rest of the day

    try out each type of session for a week and you decide which suits you best. there's no right and no wrong in this case. one man's meat is another's poison.

    i used to take a 1 hr run during lunch time when i was living overseas.

    i feel more alert after the run, when I am running regularly.

    if i stop running for months then resume, i feel like dying even after the first 5 mins. stamina can be buid up over time, but also lose over time

    I only jog when i'm very stressed....

    Actually not jog lah... I sprint instead.

    I will juz head down to the park with my MP3 then zoom for usually two rounds. Eh, i suppose two rounds abt 1.5 or 2 km..... The whole process of me going down stairs then zoom two rounds and go upstairs again do not take more than 10mins....

    Then after that, i wipe my sweat & usually will juz head straight for the exercise mat which i have at home and drop dead...

    Wake up after maybe 30mins and i feel like i juz had a night's worth of rest.....

    I hate early mornings (normally not up before 10am).....but the benefit is if you are doing 2-4 hour runs (@14-20 miles) then it gives you more day to play with. Your nutrition before, during and after will be key to how you feel after.....

    I enjoy evening runs more.

    LEP how many miles are you thinking of doing? Have you got a goal in mind?

    2-4 hr runs are quite outa my league Lady Iron... erm sowwie i meant Ice. I'm doing approx. 3km runs. Basically to de-stress and to ged some good ol' exercise to avert the battle of the bulge!

    I personally prefer jogging after work but the prob is I end work in the wee hours and that it's prolly gonna b hard to fall asleep w the adrenaline pumping and all!
