If you walk for your health, do you walk in the a.m. or p.m.?

I've been cooped up in the apt for a week and really need to get out and walk but the heat is unbearable. I'm trying to figure out if the heat is worse in the a.m. or the p.m. after the sun goes down. I checked the weather website but they say the heat index is pretty close at both times. So I wondered what others do.

  • According to this article its the mornings.  My best times were in the mornings. 

    If you have trouble with consistency, morning may be your best time to exercise, experts say.

  • I really like walking in the evening, not matter what time of year it is. I like walking at night in the summer because it is cooler and I always take my dog and he overheats if it is too warm. I like walking late during fall and winter because it is quieter and less traffic and it is more relaxing.

  • I do long distance walking on the weekends, and the only way is to go right before the hot ball of sun comes out!!!!

  • I have to wak my dog three times a day,most of the time 4 times a day,no matter what the weather. I live in a townhome without a fenced yard so I walk her for "potty breaks". We go as soon as I get up , then around lunch time and dinner time and always around 9 PM.

  • I jog and i do it in the PM. right before a late dinner so that my tummy is not full of food. But i also can't leave the kids behind so i have to go a little before dusk.
