Hi Runners All
Well, I got out there again this morning and stuck to my usual route around the lake in the country park next door. I did my 5 minute warm up and started running. I ran all the way round the lake and then veered off and ran alongside the river, thus increasing my distance. I thought the distance round the lake was 1.1 miles. On enquiring at the visitor's centre I discovered it is, in fact, one and a half miles so I've been doing better than I thought especially today when I had to find some extra route to be able to complete the run. Including warm up and warm down walks I reckon I'm not far off 4K now. I lengthened my stride again and felt I was starting to run rather than jog in the last couple of minutes so I am well pleased with myself today.
Have put up a picture of part of the lake around which I run. The trees behind the sailing club hide an old priory wall - the other side of which is the marina where I live. See, said I was close to the park!
Happy running and a very happy Easter to you all, whether running, resting or racing.
