I read a blog the other day about running just for the fun of it and thought to myself, maybe I am taking it too seriously. Then another blog about running along an old railway line (thanks Juicyju)
So tonight I thought I would take a totally different route and ran from home to my mums house which is just over 5 miles away and asked my wife if she would pick me up.
I ran along a pathway by the river medway (no not the most picturesque but it's close), did not use my garmin and decided to just use runkeeper on my phone. I managed 8.3k in 57 minutes, but that was not important. I thoroughly enjoyed the run and did not feel at any point "is it time to stop yet".
I am doing a park run on Saturday which is why changed to doing a run tonight (rather than wednesday) and feel good for it.
