I did it really rained, oh ok it was a shower just at 5k but this was a shower that would've had Noah running for his hammer and nails yep it was rain of biblical ferocity 🙂 but I carried on splishy sploshy splashy... And loved it.
I carried on further down my regular towpath route as I'd seen other runners using that direction before. Lovely wide traffic free running. Then a hill 😬. Up it I went trying not to let it kill my pace, hills are mysterious things the short sharp steep ones 😕 or the ones that gradually stretch on for what seems like forever, the latter came at about 6k soggy from rain (still falling) glasses that were in need of windscreen wipers, the hill stretched on.... And on phew.
The strangest thing though, of actually found a route I really like running, the 10k leaves me with a warm down walk just the right distance from home, normally I'm walking too far at the end of of run, my inner satnav must be on the blink 🤫.
More rain for that last Kilometer but it was nice and cooling...
10k stop watch 57.58 almost 1 whole minute off my previous fastest how that happened I don't know,
But hey things happen 🥳.
Are you running today, you are fantastic get out there Lace up the shoes and go👍👍
