Janathon day six: brief and local

At the moment the majority of my running happens in the dark. One of the downsides of this (especially when combined with a lack of time and a reluctance to run more than three miles) is that my routes are somewhat restricted. I have two routes if I turn left out of the front door and two routes if I turn right out of the front door. It is day six and already I’m getting bored.

It’s also occurred to me that when I’ve done an Athon in the past, I’ve been running regularly in the months beforehand and even with the most optimistic spin, this cannot be said about Janathon 2015. This is why a few more single mile runs than usual have crept in this year, the last thing I want to do is get carried away and do myself a mischief.

So tonight I ran up the next street and back again, then up the next street and back again, and then up the next street and back along the main road. I covered a mile but barely lost sight of the front door.

    I got so bored with my usual routes that I started adding an element of randomness in*. It still means the same streets but at least the order changes a little.

    *Turn left if there’s a car, cross if the road is clear, go over the level crossing if it’s open, run past the level crossing if it’s down, follow runners who overtake me until I lose sight of them, follow any chalk arrows I see** etc etc

    **so far not onto the waiting axe of a psychopath with a yen for runners.
