Happy Mondays. I think I'm a runner...


It was such a joy to head out this morning knowing I might beat the heat and get my week 2 done before the heat of the day. 6k felt very do-able, even after four days break so I'm buzzing this morning.

Took a short cycle to my start point and walked down to the river and the lock through a sleepy village, however quite a few people were out on the paths, runners , dog -walkers and fishermen.

The first ten minutes were however not enjoyable at all . Legs were saying 'no!' New shoes saying 'yes!' Brain saying 'c'mon , steady and strong, strong and steady'.

A long straight stretch along a cycle track parallel with the railway took me to the next lock with a big loop around a beautiful meadow shimmering in the early light.

Ok week three here I come....6k to 10k ? Yes I think I can do it. It's really going to happen. Have a good day runners.

Well done on your 6k!!! Lovely shady place to run too. You’ve definetly got 10K in the bag. 💪🏼💪🏼

(I think our legs were still in the weekend when we started our runs this morning then we dragged them into Monday!!) 😬😬

Thanks a lot. Yes slightly too many Bucks Fizz at a a birthday brunch yesterday didn't help! Though drank loads of water later. Can't believe I'm plotting how to get the most out of 3.5k later this week and feeling excited.
