Today was the first day of this adventure when I decided not to run first thing in the day as I planned on going into work, getting stuff done and being home early enough to still feel I was on holiday.
So I planned instead to run at the reservoir on my way home. I was very good leaving at 3pm (despite having realised I could have stayed overnight and still not be finished) but then sat in traffic inching very slowly to towards my planned run because of some sort of fuel spill that had closed a major road nearby.
By the time I got to the reservoir I felt like I'd lost the best of the afternoon sun and the temperature was dipping into minus figures - however the whole thing must have been fate as I got to run through the most glorious sunset ever and the folk at the cafe stayed open until I'd finished 'because we knew you'd want your hot chocolate'. 😁😊
A lovely 5k!
