I remember posting some time ago that I mainly run on the treadmill at the gym because its not great to run where I live. Don't get me wrong, its lovely countryside but not much in the way of paths and deep tractor tracks on the fields just perfect for turning an ankle on. Perfect for a nice walk in my sturdy walking boots but running is a no no. Anyway I decided that as I AM A RUNNER so says Laura, enough of the treadmill so my first post graduation run was up the road, round the village hall field, grassy but not too bad and on round the triangle to return by the footpaths that my daughter assured me were in fact there so I would be quite safe. A little road run down a very quiet lane, no problems and really quite enjoyable, turn right and bingo, no path on the main road, not to worry as pretty quiet so on I go, now a ROADRUNNER! I make sure I am facing any oncoming traffic and keep well over, suddenly there is white van man fast approaching me in my bright orange flurescent running top but because there is a car coming behind me, white van man decides that he will keep on driving at me like I really want to jump in the ditch! Scary close thing and I'm not happy and quite shaken. Next run tomorrow will be back at the gym but I will run up the lane from the gym to the main road and back again and maybe around the grounds and just pop in for a post run shower, hope they don't think that too weird. Well that's my plan. Anyone else had problems with traffic?
