Hi SP
Thaks for you message. I know what you mean about running past your front door. Too much emptation. Maybe Ill try the singing thing, not that Im any good at it. But who cares. I think my neighbours already think Im mad anyway, as I went out runnin the other night and it was raining, one old man said I must be mental, says him walking in the rain!!
I actually found it quite refreshing.

At least the rain cools you down

The other day i was running in a downpour and some woman i know said "its not ideal weather to be out running" and i replied its refreshing and it keeps you cool

Hi Ellen, I'm new too, and also run alone. I don't take a mobile with me, but I do take a high decibel alarm with a rip cord which you can cause a distraction with, if nothing else.

I tend to road (pavement) run on quite a large housing estate, so I never feel too isolated.

I've found it helps to vary your route, and the times of day to go out. I usually set some goals from the 5k training plan to work to, and as some of the others have said, having an ultimate goal, such as a race, really helps you stay motivated.

Good luck, H
