Piccadilly Line Complete

For the last 4 nights I have left work with the declaration, “Right, I’m off to do the Piccadily Line”. Tonight all excuses escaped me and I finally had to knuckle down and get it completed.

It wasn’t as grueling as I expected, Garmin reported a total distance of 11.6 km but there were a lot of squiggles on the trace so it may have been quite a lot lot less.

Not much running in the proper central London bit, too much risk of being mowed down by a tuk tuk.

I started upping the pace around Piccadilly Circus as I didn’t want to make myself a sitting target for Eros.

After the lure of the bookshops on Piccadilly I managed to get a good stint of running done, past the Ritz through the relative oasis of Green Park and then out onto Wellington Arch and the traffic chaos of Knightsbridge.

    A lot of that route must be quite difficult to run with all the people milling around. I am always amazed how unaware a lot of people are of the movement of others. They can be very frustrating as they lurch into your path.

    You’re right. I just had to chill out from Kings X to The Ritz or I’d just be adding to the background pavement rage. The latter half was fine for running though.
