After a break from running I have been regularly running 5+ k for several weeks every other day and Im keen to keep up my routine BUT at the end of July/beg of Aug I am going to be driving a support van for a group of charity cyclists who are riding approx 100miles a day from London's Trafalgar Square to the Vatican Square and am wondering how I'm going to fit in my runs...
Does anyone have any top tips about
(i) running safely as a female in another country (The other support driver -my boyf isn't a runner and doesn't want to be!)
(ii) Hygiene -we are camping to keep costs low.
(iii) Running "blind" in new places where I don't know any routes
(iii) Is there any running etiquettes I should know about running in France/Germany/Austria/Switzerland
I guess the most sensible thing to do is to stick to the footpaths alongside the main roads and run during daylight in my florescent yellow running top, but I would appreciate anyones advice or just be interested to hear other peoples stories...
