Running at night’s not a bad way to get some miles in. Take away the safety issue and it’s quite a peaceful hour or so. Mr Chips was a bit late home last night so I didn’t get to go out for a run until the end of Holby City (wasn’t watching it honest!). By then most traffic on the main road had gone and the village was almost silent.
I’ve never run that late at night before so it was a bit of a first. With a full moon out even the really dark streets were lit up and I ventured beyond the safety of the street lights….not too far though – about 200 metres along I wasn’t sure where the kerb ended and the road started and was then blinded by a car with full beams on! So back round the village under the gentle glow of the street lamps. Only one slight altercation with a dog and it’s owner – not sure who was more scared – think it was the dog actually.
But, that was another 4 miles clocked and a resolve to try to run a bit more in daylight. As nice as it was, I spent more time worrying where I was treading rather than concentrating on running so lunchtime run tomorrow methinks!
