Woke up this morning to glorious sunshine (took a while before I remembered what it was 😂) so no excuses to put off my first ever attempt at 7k.
I'm so fed up with pavement runs - but it's still so muddy when I head for the fields that I've been racking my brains to think of somewhere more inspiring but with decent paths. This week I thought of the local reservoir - the path around it is tarmac - so not great for the knees - but the surroundings are more pleasurable and I'm less likely to slip over or lose a shoe (both of which happened last time I went off road). And of course it's very flat (is this cheating?)
And it was amazing. I went off slowly and stayed that way and felt really comfortable and like I could run some more at the end.
Feel like I'm really getting somewhere (ironically while running in a circle 😂) - a lovely start to the weekend!
Happy running 😊
