Janathon Day 4.

Lovely to be home and back in London.   Decided to go out as soon as possible before I could get too cosy, stuck into sorting out post from junk mail or unpack my laptop.

It felt really cold so I went out all wrapped up only to discover fairly quickly it wasn’t too bad.  Hat lasted 10 mins and the gloves 15!  Very enjoyable 30 min loop around my local area.  It was dark but not late; the streets were well-lit and still busy so I had to do a fair bit of dodging around shoppers and people on their way home from work.

Much as I enjoy my scenic runs in Isle of Wight, London is my favourite place to run.  I love town running for the safety of lit pavements which allow (in theory) runs after dark, at busy periods, when it’s pouring with rain or even foggy.  I’m also looking forward to a run around Hyde Park later this week totally immersed in my music at full volume!

3.37 miles  31.46mins.

  1. It’s interesting, there’s been quite a bit of dicussion today about the safety of running in the dark…

  2. good on you for getting out there. i wore a hat and gloves on my last run, and took them off at about the same time stamp as you did. funny how i underestimate how much heat i generate while running…
    long live Janathon! (at least until the end of the month….)

  3. Somehow, when I first step out of the house I can never remember that I’ll be warm in 5 mins and always feel the need to bundle up like a bundled up thing.
