Cold start today- 6 degrees apparently, my hands were like ice for the first 2k. But blue sky, a beautiful day, although dark in the trees making me realise I won’t be able to run on weekdays for much longer as it’ll be too dark in the mornings and evenings.......that’s very sad 😔
Up the road,along the track, lots of rabbits, through the farm, more rabbits, down the cow field, and into the trees. Then up the field - and frost!! Yes frost in rural Oxfordshire this morning! A muntjac was hugging the hedge, and the sheep couldn’t be asked to move from the cosy spot under the trees as I trotted by. Up through the next farm then down the track we used to run cross country at school over 30 years ago - not good memories!!!
My target today was to get further than last weeks 8k on my quest to reach 10K sometime soon.....
Two lovely black labs on the narrow path in the woods, a quick circle around the church and back through the woods - black labs again!
My watch says 56 mins - ok - new target of 1 hour. Ugh - still going and it’s uphill now. 1 hour up - I would never have believed this would be possible- ever!!! 🤗. 9k+ done. Next target ? The big 10K. I need to think where I can go to add more distance without too many more hills - a bit of a challenge around here!!!
Happy running all. 😊🏎
