Last week I ran along the canal in pouring rain, dodging puddles and slipping on a wet bridge. Today, same canal, beautiful blue skies, sunshine and reflections. It was like a whole different run, head up, taking in the sights. I wasn't going to go after a dodgy tummy last night, but Sadie-runs inspired me with her post this morning and it was just the kick I needed to take the risk.
Swans, moorhens, ducks, gorgeous flowers and leaves, amazing reflections, gravel paths, mud trails, trees (complete with man taking a leak ... ooer!).
I was going to make it a slightly shorter run after not being well last night, but a path closure three quarters of the way round one of the lakes I was running meant I was so far from the car that it made no sense to stop early!. So a beautiful, beautiful 15k made all the nicer as I thought it wouldn't be possible today.
