Nice summary. I’ve been running 5km daily for more than 7 months now. I can relate to your points. I find it less of a chore than going to the gym (not that we can now as our gyms have been closed for months).

I also add in Fartlek sequences and kettlebells on alternate days. Kettlebells after warming up and before running, and Fartlek training between 1 and 4 kilometres as the run develops. I look forward to it each day.

A little bit different to your experience – I don’t feel especially hungry afterwards. I mainly satisfy extra hunger by eating oranges (skin and all) and nuts :)

Cheers
