I made it to the other side of the world and completed my second run today. It was a lovely level walking track around the lakeside and although, as usual, the first couple of minutes had me questioning whether I actually was a runner (does this ever happen to other graduates?)I eventually got into a rhythm and felt I could have gone on for miles more. It was such bliss to run in shorts and T-shirt after the winter layers I'd been donning in North Yorkshire. I actually ran for 6K and recorded a personal best for 5K (which is still only a miserable 39 minutes, but I am inspired to think that in this climate I will improve). I have 10 weeks here, so by then I will hopefully be confident that I can actually complete my 10K in July. My internet connection here is restricted to internet cafes but when I can I will
post some photos of the glorious scenery to make you all madly jealous!
