Hi, I don’t post very often, was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on running to and from work.
I live in Leicester and commute to Birmingham for work on the train. I have to fit my running in when I can which I’m sure is the case for a lot of people. I run to and from the station in Leicester and in Birmingham and so my running day looks like this;
~5:30am – 3 miles Home to Leicester station
~7:20am – 2 miles Birmingham New Street to the office
~4:40pm – 2 miles Office to Birmingham New Street
~6:00pm – 3 miles Leicester Station to home.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the above, particularly on the pros and cons of doing 4 pretty short runs throughout the day?
I try and keep in mind a decent tempo to all the runs, and have been trying to incorporate some fartlek running to the longer runs, but in terms of the quality of the run i.e. how good I feel whilst doing it, the 3 milers are pretty grim as I’ve either just got up or am knackered at the end of the day. So the 1st and last run end up being pretty attritional.
I don’t do this every day, between 1 and 3 times a week. On other days I bike to the station.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
