Train or train?

Following on from my post on training routine, I’ve been searching for further ways to economise my time. Catch the train? Or train…whilst making your way home? My journey to my new job is – frankly – ridiculous: three modes of transport, plus two 10-15min walks either end, adding up to – at best – 1h15, and on Friday evening a round 2hrs. The real loose cannon is the train; the tube doesn’t help, and the buses are less-than-consistent. Enough is enough.

Where possible, I’m running home. The below route can take in up to three green spaces – Wandsworth and Clapham Commons, and Battersea Park – as well as London’s spectacular skyline from Chelsea Embankment past Westminster, The Eye, and the best of the north Thameside, before cutting through the City of London. The river section is a favourite for my 3hr runs. There are also options for diverting up to Hyde and Regents Parks for variety.
