Since coming back from holiday mid-November I've been trying to up my mileage. No excuses about it being too hot, or trips away to break my routine. I've even been doing a bit of streaking and for a couple of weeks I even ran 5 times a week, but that was too tiring and I've cut back to 4x (2 x 5km, 1x interval of about 3 km and a longer run of about 7km). I would love to manage 100k in December, but as we all know the Christmas season is upon us and what with alcohol, excess food, too much partying etc I can see my resolve fading. So in order to keep myself motivated I'm thinking about maybe running home from work. It's about 9km. I walk it regularly - there are a lot of traffic lights and it's from the centre of Munich, so not exactly the quiet, residential areas I usually haunt. And what do I do with my stuff? I've never run with a rucksack before and I don't want it stuffed and bulky with work clothes. But I am very tempted tomorrow night and it would be a great start to the holiday season, allowing me some smugness on Christmas Eve. And maybe I could squeeze a shorter interval run in on Christmas Day and appease my conscience.
Who else runs home from work, and how do you cope with the clothes transport problem?
