Walking home South London, via Victoria Park. Autumn is here.

A gorgeous autumnal Sunday, my boyfriend and I go for a run. “Do you mind if I listen to music?” He asks. Of course not I reply, dangling my earphones.

We run past a narrow boat on the Hertford Union canal lock and people taking pictures of it.  We join the joggers pounding down Victoria Park’s paths. CHVRCHES and Erasure sing in my ears; how lovely to realise their new albums are also good for runners.

My right knee starts to ache just over 4km, by a water fountain. “Let’s walk the rest of the way.” He smiles in agreement.

Walk home after work through Mile End Park, Regent's Canal.

Autumn in London has been beautiful so far: sunny skies and crisp days.

I walk through Bow and Peckham on my way to work, listening to recently downloaded albums: the new ones from Erasure, Ghost Culture, Disclosure, CHVRCHES and New Order – plus some old ones too (Pet Shop Boys, 1999; Yazoo, early 80s.)

I have no energy or disposition to exercise once I’m back home; I’m envious of those heading towards Victoria Park. I’ve tried a few times to get off the tube earlier and walk up Mile End Park, following Regent’s Canal. I’m invisible to incoming cyclists and joggers.
