I have not run much in the dark lately. I did recently do one with a friend who wanted some company. He had a light strapped to his chest and I can see why. Some of the time I could not see where I was treading and our footpaths can be uneven. Happily I did not trip at all.
I was thinking I would run tomorrow as I already ran yesterday, but there just will not be time as I have a couple of things going on after work. We are into the Christmas season and some drinking may be involved.
It was warm enough for a t-shirt tonight and I chose a nice bright one so I could be seen. I did a similar pace to yesterday, but was tiring towards the end. I was reading about a streak which consists of running every day over the Thanksgiving to New Year period. They say you can just do a mile, but that still involves getting changed and probably taking a shower each time and that eats a lot of time. I would struggle to run every day, but maybe I can try shorter periods. I was reading a few articles and one advised that you should dress as if it were about ten degrees warmer. That sounds reasonable to me as I warm up a lot when I run.
I was listening to No Guitar Is Safe featuring an interview with Scott Henderson.
I have been thinking I need to do more distance each week. 25km sounds about right, but that would mean getting out three or four times. It is more like two or three for me. I will see if I can step it up in the new year.
