OK, if I’m to survive the fun run i have to get some training in.
I know I can walk the distance as I regularly cover that with the dog but I want to do the best time that I can.
If I’m walking around Strathclyde Park that is 4 miles and I can do that in 1 hour easily.
For my “jog” I am going along the main road leading out of town, there is a pavement and it is well lit as I have to resort to running after 22:30 when things quieten down at home. I’m using the lamp posts to help judge my intervals. That said there are a couple of “long” gaps in a few places !
