The first two shirt run of Autumn!

β€’16 Replies

Yep! It is true; 2 top layers needed for the whole run!! Ok it was only the addition of a merino top, but definitely a sign that cooler times are ahead. It was "set the watch for 10k and see what happens" Thursday. The result was another 10 mile run, with added hills navigated at a steady 8:04/k. The only way I managed to keep the pace down was by really shortening stride, but today it didn't feel so awkward, so maybe that is my long distance happy pace! Yesterday's swim may have loosened things up. Garmin says elevation gain was 143m, but I think that is just difference between maximum and minimum points and doesn't take account of the ups and downs in between? Who knows! Anyway, a nice run, with lots of pleasant people around. I see it as a 10 mile consolidation; maybe I will be ready to up it to 18k again next long run day, but I am not rushing up to a HM; that way lies IC I think. Coffee and brownie consumedπŸ˜‹, now for late lunch to make up all of those lost calories, and all is well with the world (unless you make the mistake of switching on the news!). Happy running folks 😊

Yep, noticed it nippy out of the Sun.. πŸ˜‰


Gosh, I must have toughened up, I was still in a tee shirt at 06.00 this morning 😊

Sounds like you had a great run though β˜•πŸͺ

We get chilly winds from the west, and downright freezing ones from the east up here! I think that I wasn't running fast enough to warm up!!🐌😊


A northerly breeze down here but still in one layer. Well done to another 10 mile beachcomber- it can’t have been a mistake first time round. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. It sounds like you’ll get to HM with no problem - now don’t beat cheeky and Stanley to it though. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

That would be just plain rude!πŸ˜‚


Woo, well done you too BC! I wasn’t in the two tops club today though - still shorts and a sleeveless vest for toasty little me! It needs to be πŸ₯Ά for me to run with extra clothes. πŸ₯ΆπŸ₯Ά

No HM yet? Bet you will eventually! Party gear is all lined up. πŸŽ‰ πŸ™Œ πŸ₯³ 🎈 πŸ₯‚ πŸ…πŸƒ

Thanks Al. Always nice to hear from someone further North than me!😊


True..bit of a chill!


I waited until about 10am after I’d walked the dog to do my 10k (not miles!) today and was still in cropped leggings and short sleeves. Just chilled enough πŸ˜ƒ

Only one shirt for me and I was hot by the end of my 10k!β˜€οΈ
