My training's going well at the moment and i put this down to incorporating my long runs into my commute. I come in from Essex on the train, get off at Stratford, run through Olympic Village, Victoria Park, Regents Canal to Angel, drop down and then back on the canal up to Regents Park, down to Hyde Park, Green Park, St James Park and then to work on the Embankment.
It's a great run if i need to adjust mileage i just add more or less to the parks. I've only started doing this this summer and would ideally like to carry on through the winter but i have concerns about the safety on Regents Canal. Has anyone here run it in the winter?
I'm thinking about
a) Lighting (i could wear a head torch)
b) Getting mugged (i am 10 stone weakling)
c) Falling in the river
d) Bicycle traffic
