All down hill from here!

All down hill from here!

No internet for over a week and busy at work so posting this run report a couple of weeks late!

Beginning of December and a beautiful day here in the Highlands - dry, sunny, not too cold, hardly any wind and no ice. Perfect day for a run! So I ask hubby to drop me off in the car so I could run back home along the single track mountain road. Wonderful views.....just glorious and if I hadn't started Couch25K I probably would never have walked, let alone run along this road! I haven't been able to run three times a week regularly for a while now so found some of the run hard work and for some reason developed blisters in the same place on both feet, but was determined to keep going. The photo is at about 7k and it was downhill from there to home! Finally reached home - 11.15km in 1hour 20 mins and feeling very pleased (but with sore feet!). Looking forward to new shoes in the January sales.......

    Hope Santa or January brings nice new shoes.
