The joys and perils of running at lunch....
is that a hint?
YES...................my phone has bust oh well never mind.............time for a nespresso anybody want one??? Think I might get a large packet of choccie biscuits and eat today!!!
Three mile run into work was pleasant but didn't sleep too well cant think why!!! So bit tired this am!!!
I don't get lunch breaks either. I tend to work 18hr 2pm - 8am or 6hr shifts. No breaks. I'm lucky, some people here work 3 or 4 days straight through. (we are allowed to eat just not a lunch break). Because I work in group homes with adults with learning difficulties you can't actually do anything without being followed by someone.You have to make sure you bolt the bathroom door properly as well. (A mistake I've made just the once ).
I run on my way home from work, like this morn I did hill reps but I cycle commute.
Blimey Gingerbread that sounds like slave labour working 18 hour shifts!! Thought slavery had been abolished......do you get to sleep in that time at all if its nights? I cycle in and out or at lunch if I fancy a change or have to get home earlier for stuff.
I was on my own in the office getting changed the other day and in came the post lady for a signature, that was interesting having to explain I had run in to work and was turning on my computer while getting changed. She smiled in a bemused way and shot off!!!!! She gives me a wry smile when I see her now!!!
I run at Lunchtime most days. I am lucky as we have a gym on site so I can run on a trreadmill if the weathers too bad.
I went for a run outdoors yesterday in all those wild winds - gym staff thought I was mad but I quite enjoyed it!
Biggest draw back for me running at Lunchtime is sweating when I get back in the office!!!!
Anybody got any good tips for cooling down quickly?
12 miles in 1:17 is awesome! At the moment dont get lunch break (i know i am a fool) but as our team is being restructured, i am planning to change that . . . running in the centre of bristol is a nightmare! Has anyone got any suggestions of routes around bristols...?

Working Time Directive?
Don't get enough time for a lunchtime run
Just seen this thread. Run at lunchtimes only over the winter. Too hot and so sweaty other times of the year. No shower! Have to wash the best I can in basins. I use to travel the whole of West Sussex. absolutly brillient! Could run in Ashdown Forest one day, then around Thorney Island the next. Shame now only Bognor Regis to Worthing now. That still means a good chunk of the South downs and The South Coast and at most times of the year if I leave my run to later, the south part of the Weald on the way home. Lucky me! Does mean have to get in early or work late to make up the time.
