Lovely sunny, chilly early morning run! Thought I’d do a shorter run this morning. Still needed my lightweight jacket and not yet warm enough for shorts, I set off at 7.30am having been distracted chatting to my brother. So I forgot to do my stretches and stopped halfway through my warm up walk to do them.
Off I go and set off a little too fast, but I’m just going with the flow this morning. 2nd km is a little slower than the first as it’s slightly uphill. I miss the flatness of the fens but I do feel I’m making progress with the slopes.
As I’m running, I hear the whistling of Red Kites calling to each other. I look up and see them soaring and circling, familiar sounds and sights of this area. One spots something and dives down to investigate; I’m able to catch a glimpse of the markings on the top of his wings.
3rd km is a little faster as it’s downhill, but looking at the stats it was quite a slow run this morning. Mr. Garmin, however, was mightily pleased and rewarded me accordingly!
Back home for stretches and coffee! 😊
