You also generally need to live close enough to run both ways, although some other former club-mates ran part of the way and then caught a train for the rest, often climbing into packed commuter carriages sweating profusely in their running gear.
Some of my favourite running memories are of running to and from work when I was a serious athlete. Whilst living in London in the mid-1970s, I frequently ran to or from work (and occasionally both ways), a distance of about 10 miles. My route took me from south-east London through Brixton, which in those days was a bit of a ghetto, then across the Thames past Victoria Station and the back of Buckingham Palace before a last glorious section through Hyde Park to my workplace near Bond Street. Forty years later, I still have vivid memories of that regular run.

Training-wise, out of necessity, I did more walking today than for the past few. My right arch is sensitive, but I wouldn't call it painful. Still a few more quiet days to go before I resume any running. It's very frustrating.
