just to add to all the good advice above , I always use to plan routes that passed friends houses so I was never far from a safe place. I did also try using gympse app on my phone. it meant I could go out for along run and my partnercould use email to check where I was , I could also ssend messages ( get help or call police for example) quickly with one touch . I dont use it now as it requires the other person to know you are going out and be checking their email regulary .
