Slowly slowly


So with lots of things getting in the way of my Tues,Thurs, Sun routine I really do need to just consolidate at 5km for a few weeks. But its also to take some positives from it all. Last week in Munich I had a bad run and had to stop after 16 minutes even though I know I can tun for an hour.

So this morning the shoes were on and I was out the door. There had been a 'well then I cant run!'m moment of an excuse when I realised I hadnt packed my running shorts (I'm travelling on business again) but then decided that just the lycra shorts I wear under my running shorts would be fine.

I love tourist running. So many new things to look at and see. The little village I live in in Czech Republic only has a population of 350 so to have the chance to go running along the Thames in London was a treat.

I managed 25 minutes before I realised I was back at the hotel and it felt good to be back out. The 10km badge is going to take that bit longer but it will still be there.

Oooh lovely. I agree about running tourism. I tend to travel to backwaters following lower league football. Still a new Route is always an adventure 😃

London bridge on a beautiful morning. Lovely 💪👍😃

That sounds like a great run, and I know exactly what you mean about tourist running. I was running in Wiltshire again at the weekend and found a new route along the River Avon. I'm quite jealous of your London run, as although I travel into London twice a week for choir rehearsals I haven't managed to run there yet.


I bet that was amazing. Like you I think its a real adventure to run in new and different places.... lovely :)


Glad you had a good run. Always nice to get a good one!! 😊😊


Wow...I love that picture, what a fab run you’ve had GingerBohemian must’ve seen more people in 5k than you see in one day at home??! Nothing wrong with a bit of Lycra!! I’m looking forward to my tourist running in just over a week...🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️💪🏼


Lovely photo and what a memorable run! I love running tourism too because you see so much more than you otherwise would.

There's no hurry for the badge and in the meantime it sounds as if you're having a fabulous time 🤗
