A nice morning, damp from yesterday's rain but the sun peeked through as I set off. Did my favourite route with a bit extra - village, country road, riverside boardwalk, canal towpath. Met an older woman and her granddaughter picking blackberries - the little girl a bit despondent as she couldn't reach the best ones. I'd picked mine last weekend so I pointed them to the best area to find them
Felt good at the 5k point so kept going. Was aiming for 6k today. Felt good at 6k so kept going....
Felt that I could have gone further but, mindful of potential injury and the advice of my friends on here, I stopped at 7.5k - not fast, 59 minutes.
I'm still debating whether to enter a 10k I've seen locally in just under 3 weeks - it looks like a really nice bit of countryside but is described on the website as 'challenging' and 'undulating' - scary words! I'll have to try a few longer runs first
