I am in Portsmouth for work this week and staying at a hotel on Hayling Island. There has not been much time for running, but it was still just about light when we got back today so I quickly got changed and went out. There is a track down the coast that is where the old railway line used to be. Even the bridge has gone apart from the supports. I ran out to where the bridge was and there is still an old signal there.
I turned back to head south for a while. It was getting quite dark, so I needed to watch my step. I just saw a few cyclists who had their lights on.
After twenty minutes I turned back. I had started off pretty fast, but took it easier on the return journey as it was dark. I diverted to follow the main road where there were lights. There was a lot of traffic considering it is a dead end, but people were probably coming home from work.
The last bit to the hotel is not lit up and has no path, so I needed to be extra careful there.
It was a good workout, so I was quite sweaty. Luckily the room had a nice shower. I had a few minutes before going downstairs for dinner to cool off. I had a beer (London Pride) with my fish and chips. The hotel is pretty busy with a big group of pensioners staying. My room is nice and quiet though.
I will try and fit in another run this week.
Run free and stay well.
