Sun was forecast, it peeped its little face out, I was ready for it and off I went. Deliberately looking for trail-shoe-friendly mud.
I tried the B210K podcast. Didn’t like it at all. The music was the wrong tempo and I didn’t want to walk when it told me to, I wanted to run. Also didn’t like the music (due to my advanced age) so I turned it off and listened to Ted Talks. I passed other runners I know twice and stopped to talk, then ran to some steps I completely failed to run up a few weeks ago and had another go. (What has happened to me ?!!) Got to the top...just. Basically walked the last 1 or 2. Then plodded slowly home as that was all I had left in me. 5.5km done so total for this year is now 43km.
