I’m staying near Canary Wharf for business this week and am totally unfamiliar with the area so completed W4R1 on Sunday on the treadmill in the hotel gym.
Then I remembered why I hate treadmill running... it is SO BORING.
So this morning, after checking out the local area a bit yesterday evening, I set out along the Thames path at 6:40am, admiring the river and the scenery in the general peace and quiet that time of morning can bring even to this part of London. This was more like it!
Then, I spied a fox! Having grown up in London I had always viewed these urban foxes as total menaces, but having not seen one in 10 years since moving to Yorkshire, I guess my view has changed. This one was a beauty and just sat there watching me as I ran past - I couldn’t keep my eyes off it! A few minutes later and I spotted another! Again, a beautiful animal which looked healthy and quite happily watched me pass.
I certainly won’t be in a rush to use the treadmill again. Great run, still enjoying it and looking forward to my last London run on Thursday.
