I bought 2 pairs of running shoes within a week, a month ago, and did one run before life in all its variations kicked in and left me no time for running. Today I slept in too late for a Parkrun but got out a bit later. Did one of my favourite routes, enjoying a lovely sunny autumn morning. It was a bit chilly so I went out in T shirt, long sleeved top, jacket and gloves. A bit excessive! The gloves came off first, followed rapidly by the jacket.
It was truly lovely running along quiet lanes bordered by beautiful orange and yellow leaved trees. On the short boardwalk section I wondered if it would be slippery with lots of leaves underfoot, but as it's covered by chicken wire, it was fine. I didn't need Yaktrax, SaskAlliecat !
It was a lovely run, 5k, not my fastest, but then I haven't run for a month. It took my mind off a difficult week at work and a friend and colleague who recently had a devastating diagnosis. I'm so lucky to be able to get out and run, however infrequently 😄
