I thought I'd drop back in and let you know how things are going. I've been running from St Pancras to West Kensington twice a week so far, I take a bag with me on Monday with two sets of clothes in. I've been getting the 6.17 from Ebbsfleet to St Pancras and am running by around 6.45, it's just over 5 miles to the office and I'm normally there between 7.30 and 7.40 which gives me plenty of time to get myself sorted out and ready for the day.(Loo, shower and breakfast)
Running along the Euston Road at that time of the morning isn't too bad, I just have to remember which way to look at each junction. It's been dark when I've been going through Hyde Park but the paths are good quality and can be seen without any additional light. High Street Kensington can be quite busy with pedestrians but so far so good.
I haven't tried the Regents Canal yet, is it lit at that time of day?
Ha ha! Yes I am still alive and running! I try and get in here now and again but things are pretty hectic work wise at the moment so I don't seem to find much time in the evening. It was nice to put a face to the name Podds, I thought as I went round on the first lap, a lady with retired greyhounds and we're in the Thanet area, could it be Podds? (I know that seems a bit random but that's how my brain works sometimes) And as I had to walk to the top of the hill where you were marshalling I had enough breath to ask you!
From a running perspective I ran the Kent Roadrunner Marathon at the end of May but have done very little since then. My work has moved from Romford to West Kensington so I'm trying to run from St Pancras to West Kensington 2 mornings a week. It's a nice 5 mile run which includes going through Hyde Park. I'm also trying to run on a Friday lunchtime and then again on Sunday. I'm also up to 86 volunteer duties at my local parkrun as well.
I hope you are all keeping well although I have noticed on my brief visits that there have been a number of health and personal issues which have had to be dealt with.I'll try and get in more often.
Oh, and Podds, are you marshalling at the Thanet 10 next week cos I'm running that as well?
