sounds to me like you should walk facing traffic. Never heard of that, but I remember a thread long ago where members where annoyed at pedestrians walking on the right hand side of shared cycle/walk lanes.

wouldn't you just stop? I imagine a runner would move off the lane asap once they saw traffic coming their way.
As a runner myself, I definitely feel safer running on the road in back streets, cars backing out are hazardous. Not so much an issue on a main road as usually there is much more room between path fence, but not always. However, I'd normally run on a back street.
