Had my second evening run since putting the clocks back and tonight was so much better than Monday. After Monday's fiasco of nearly getting run over by a car forcing me to stop for a short while we exchanged pleasantries (NOT!!) I was worrying about future evening runs. However, tonight I tried a different place to run. Stopping off on my way home from work I tried running around the local recreation ground which was better lit and a little more safer feeling than the unlit back roads edging onto open fields that I usually use - albeit a little samey after the 6th time around the perimeter. But I felt great I ran for a little longer than usual and covered 2.6 miles which equates to around 4.18 km. Think that 5k will soon be within my grasp.
I will be using this place again for evening runs.
