It's so wet here that they have closed the flood barriers on the guided busway I run to get to saint ives.. so my usual route has gone from ankle deep in sections to knee deep.
Also we now have a colony of seals, yes that's right! I said seals, I live 40 miles plus from the sea, but they are persistant blighters and the burst levies let them in this time of year. If you like the sound of that cambridge news has some video cambridge-news.co.uk/news/l...
So due to all that I had to run east towards cambridge and what a run it turned out to be. It is so light now I actually had a pretty amazing run with the setting sun at my back and then ahead of me on the turn around. At the 3 and 12k marks there is a windmill and a modern super tower radio mast, it's quite a juxtaposition and quite something to run between. I have used a stock photo as I don't carry a phone or camera when I run but hopefully you get the idea.
Although this was my longest run to date, it felt like I found a new gear, some kind of long running mojo turned up and I even ran click 14 in 5:53(though it felt like I was going 5:00).
I have added a cheesy pic of me end of run, as it really felt like a run to celebrate tonight.
17-18k next week
