Running has taken a new form since the evenings have become so dark, even before six .
It takes ages to get ready – head torch , fluorescent jacket and nifty lights for the back of my ankles in green and red ( can never remember which way round for port and starboard)!
Once out – it’s great . Total freedom . I’m running slightly slower on account that I can’t really see far in front of my feet and the lanes are running in water. Tonight was a gentle 5.5 km. Despite heavy showers, I stayed dry – unlike yesterday when I got soaked over half an hour.
I am so thankful to feel safe running in the lanes.
