However, I suffer from aerophasia (which occurs when you swallow air) caused by the CPAP machine which is being used to treat my sleep apnea. On days that the discomfort is significant, which is thankfully less and less often, I have two options. First, I can skip a run. If it’s been awhile since I skipped a run and it’s mid-week, I might chose this option to give myself a second recovery day. If it’s the beginning or end of the week, I’ll take my second option, as two days off in a row is a real motivation killer for me.
My other option, the one I prefer to take, is to run in the evening on those days that I can’t run first thing. It’s harder to motivate myself for an evening run during this summer heat, but not as hard as it is to motivate myself after two days off in a row.
So, what time of day do you run?
