This afternoon, I went for a run somewhere I don’t usually run – Regent’s Canal. I needed to pick up a parcel, you see, and the collection office is just by the canal.
It meant that my run was a bit more difficult than usual – I ended up running along the New North Road (busy) and then cutting through to Packington Street, crossing the canal and then running along the canal itself. I hadn’t realised how much I depend on my usual route to keep going. However, I enjoyed the novelty.
I must admit, I was slightly paranoid that someone would jump out and push me into the canal (a few cyclists lost their bikes this way a few years ago). Thankfully, this didn’t happen.
