Hello my running family....phew, after travelling for what seemed like an eternity last Friday...(the delays on the Euro tunnel were horrendous...if I’d have seen a news reporter while I was queueing I’d have given you all a shout out...!!) I have arrived in the Dordogne...and it’s beautiful...and hot..the temperature is to reach 38/40 degrees by Friday!!! (My birthday). Anyway, it’s been full on, coming back here for the fifth time we have a lot of catching up to do, welcome bbq which involves lots of food & drink...it’s all about food & drink in france!!! Well, it’s about running now too...if I’d have forgotten to pack my flip flops I wouldn’t have given a toss but if I’d forgotten my trainers well, DaddyCav’s life wouldn’t have been worth living!!! Haha...but I didn’t, they were the first thing I put in my bag, along with my running gear...I am dedicated to this running lark there is no doubt about that...
So weekend out of the way...& Monday being far too hot, this morning I knew it was to be cloudy so, I was up & off just before sunrise....my first ever tourist run. My plan was to do a short 3-5k to get a feel for running somewhere different, but my head & my legs were in total disagreement & I completed week 5 of ju-ju- ’s plan with a very lovely, very peaceful 8k...much easier than the last one..i have seen this place with runners eyes this morning & it’s even more beautiful than it was before...I will carry on the programme to the end & I know I will enjoy it because I’m in one of my favourite parts of the world so what’s not to love?? I am feeling completely blessed today xxx
Happy running everyone
