Well morning all you great runners out there! I hope you’ve had as good a morning as me.
So I was doing a virtual run with Pink. I rose at about 5.30am and couldn’t go out without having a lovely cup of tea with my darling hubby!. Anyway had that while I got running gear on whilst munching on a biscuit (having prepared it all last night ,which I don’t normally do)
My virtual run was supposed to be for 6.00am,but I think it was about 6.20 after me warm up. So I’m sure Pinkvarder was well on his way!.
The morning was glorious ☀️and as I set off 🏃♀️a beautiful buzzard flew in front of me,obviously I had woke him up.The fields are beautiful this time of year as the bringing of the hay is in progress. Massive big bales of hay all standing like statues ,all looking like massive black liquorice all sorts ha! Um! I could just eat a liquorice allsort now! Yum.😏
So carrying on through the lanes,passing the sheep,cows,in the fields 🐑 🐄 I realised that I wasn’t doing too bad for a 60 year old woman. It’s all up and down dales and the up bits are hard going,😡but i managed some of them and ones I couldn’t manage I power walked.
A beautiful breeze kept me cool most of the way and I managed to utilise the shade of the hedgerows as I ran to keep cool.
Still no other people about all still in bed !
Some parts of my run my pace was slow but I wasn’t worried because I felt great and oh my Brooke’s were just taking me onward and onward!
Anyhoo! eventually I arrived home and it was then I realised I had done over 7k,yes a little was a taken up by a power walk up one hill,but I did dig in and ran all be it slowly up the other. So I was quite chuffed. That’s the furthest I’ve gone for a while since ankle damage.
I’m sure Pinkvarder was still running when I got home as he’s probably gone further and I didn’t pass him at all hee! hee! So thank you Pink! 👍for your suggestion of a virtual run it was a great incentive for me to get me old bones up and out!
Happy running all and enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend😀😀
