W4R2 - great place to run!

Well, just done the second run of week 4. I am so glad I live where I do!

Running around my 5k circuit takes me along Millbank, past the Houses of parliament, Big Ben, along the river Thames to cross Waterloo Bridge (at sunset sometimes!). I jog along the South bank, past all the buskers & the London Eye - weaving a slalom around the hordes of tourists, past County Hall & Westminster Bridge then the quieter home stretch towards & over Lambeth Bridge.

London is a great place to be at the moment! There may be no parking spaces, but it is inspiring to run around our beautiful city while it is looking it's best for the olympics!

One more run to go before the terrifying week 5! Good luck everybody!

You are lucky! I used to live in central London years ago, but sadly didn't run then. It is a fantastic city. Enjoy your last run of week 4 :)


That sounds brilliant.

My daughter worked in Whitehall for a wee while and I just loved my visits.

London is truly awesome. I had a stiff neck from looking up at some of the gorgeous architecture.

I`d love to run in Hyde park.


Wow sounds like an amazing run....I love London! Maybe keeping heading East and you'll end up taking part the Olympics
