Running has become one of my most favourist thing to do (I bore my g/friend so much about it - its all I talk about) So its nice to find like minded peeps who understand the enjoyment, the thrill, the challenge and pain of running ! Lol x
Thank you for replying. I saw Irwell River on google maps actually and thought it would be the best route, I couldnt see if it was easy for running along or not (if it had pathways). The Premier Inn is : North Tower, Victoria Bridge Street, City Centre.
I hope this isnt the wrong forum to be posting in but I am off to Manchester soon staying at the Premier Inn in Salford, Manchester. I was looking online at some routes and also on google earth. I like running early mornings and so I would like somewhere relatively safe. I do run 9 miles along the canal here where i live in Somerset at the moment, but whilst I am away, Im only aiming for about 5 miles, maybe more, but want to see how I go in strange surroundings (for me). Can anybody recommend a good route? I think there is a canal/river nearby but again not sure if its safe or whether there are paths along there. I do run about 6am at the mo but I will probably set off more like 7am. Im only here for 3 mornings. Please please advise. I would be really grateful.
Just to put my two pence in...yep I do this too. I dont have family commitments I just find early mornings the best time to run. I do 9 miles before work and go along the canal and see so much wildlife - its lush. Spesh as I think these days in England its the only time you see the sun !
I get up around 5am and set off about 6am as I spend time stretching and warming up before I leave.
I love it and its so nice to hear that Im not the only crazy one - actually looking at this, im not really that crazy - some of you set off at 4.30 am !
