Week 2 Day 2

Today's run went rather well, even taking into consideration that I deviated from my normal route. Instead of running around the perimeter of my housing estate, I instead ran through a neighbouring estate, past Hough Green railway station, and along Liverpool Road. I was very aware that Liverpool Road is quite a bit busier than the road around my housing estate - both in pedestrians and vehicular traffic. But no one stared, pointed, or laughed at me - not that I would have noticed with my headphones on and me having "zoned out" (i.e. totally immersed in the act of running).

Way to go! Sounds like you're enjoying yourself.


It is always good to alter your routes as that way you don't get bored or too used to where the hills are!! Unless that is just me living in a very hilly area!


It is funny though, as soon as I plucked up the courage to run in public I realise that actually no one cared! Really, not a look, point or laugh.

We have nothing to fear but fear itself.
