Wifey's number 1 movie scene is the bit in Chronicles of Riddick when he climbs the rock face and is all steamy. She is watching it on tv now as I am wondering what to do for my run tomorrow. I have been inspired by his epic run to try a mini quest of my own.
Due to timing and family visits today my car is currently at my in-laws. Having a wee look at distances on a run mapping programme shows it is almost exactly 6km from my front door to theirs. I should manage that as the warm up walk pushes me to over 5k, albeit it is along quite a busy road.
I have 2 options, option 1, the main road is exactly 6km but is only partly paved. The verge is fairly wide and safe at the unpaved parts though,
Option 2 would involve a detour down a farm track to miss the unpaved part but pushes the distance to 7km which is a bit much.
Given the weather is meant to be a bit wet and windy, I doubt I will want to do the extra distance. Hmm, this will be my furthest ever run distance and will be a wee bit of a challenge.
In [mostly] his immortal words:
"There's gonna be one speed: mine. [slow and steady] If you can't keep up, don't step up. you'll just die [down a bit and trundle along at a happier pace.]"
