Bucher continues, "I think the dark has more of an effect than the cold does. People around here are used to the winter weather, but it's just safer and more convenient to work out indoors when it's dark by 5:00 p.m."

What do you prefer? Would you rather keep the extra daylight in the late afternoons but get up in the dark? Or are you happy with the change, making morning more manageable at the cost of an early dusk?
