It’s cold in my house today! Oil delivery didn’t come and I’ve run out. So I figured I better run to warm up!
2 layers on top and windproof lightweight jacket, which stayed on. Running tights, neck buff and black sun visor completed the look! Hair sadly not looking so good courtesy of lockdown 🤨
It’s still a bit slippery on the paths so I tested out the road and it seemed OK. Planned a 30 minute run (about 4K for me) and decided to run with music today. Elton John suited my nostalgic mood and I was looking forward to hearing those old songs from one of his first albums.
I start nice and easy, singing along to ‘Your Song’, one of my favourites! I felt good to be out running; I like chilly runs 😊. Hardly any wind. This was definitely going to be a musical run, I didn’t zone out but sang along until I started working a bit harder and then I sang in a gasping kind of way 😬. I stepped it out for the 4th kilometre and carried on for about a minute until I’d got to 30 minutes for a Strava challenge. At the end of my run, Elton was singing ‘The King Must Die’ and it’s another of my old favourites! I had one of those lovely moments when you’re just happy to be out running.
Back home and I’m pleased to see the negative splits and a PB for 2 miles. My watch just loves me today, I have a fitness age of 20 (I’ve never seen that before!) which, of course, is ludicrous, but I have to post it for nowster 😉.
Coffee followed by porridge ☕️ 🥣 and a good start to the day 😊
