Experts suggest that running or having a rigorous exercise close to bedtime can disrupt sleep but according to Shawn D Youngstedt, Ph.D, professor of exercise science at the University of South Carolina claims that evening workout can actually improve performance of athletes as body temperature and energy - metabolizing among other physiological factors can have a positive boost. These along with less traffic and better air can give that extra help.
So, if you prefer to run at night, make sure that you have all the safety measures which blinkers and reflectorized gears for greater visibility. Run opposite the passing traffic and have your headphones in minimal volume to hear clearly.
Watch out for uneven surface, roads without street lights, and hurdles that may block your road or unlawful elements who lurk in the evening. So, run where police visibility is present and run in group or with a running mate if possible.
Have a safe running!
