Hello all. I'm here in search of advice and, probably, a bit of a kick up the backside. Feel free to administer both or either!
Have had a bit of a terrible time of late with my emotional state. I use running to manage depression and anxiety but through a combination of recent events too crappy to go into and the dark evenings I've gone a week with no runs (does me no favours at all!). Decided this cant continue, and on impulse entered a 10k for next weekend to get my *rse into gear. If I don't go out a couple of times this week I'll fret horribly next weekend rather than having what I hope will be a lovely time battering my legs (and the troublesome Black Dog) into submission up and down one of my favourite mountains.
Any tips for winter running when you leave for work and get home in the dark? It's a fell race so I'd really prefer to run off road but don't have a head torch so thinking streetlit pavement might have to suffice?
Jolly me along, folks
