As I'm getting fitter, I'm running faster without really realising. This is good, but also makes things difficult. The second ten minute run was much harder than the first. I had to slow it right down to only just faster than walking pace. This was the hardest run yet, but only because I got the timing wrong. I realised that I used to run that slowly to start with and that it would help anyone struggling to slow it right down.
I run along a canal and I probably aim for the same point to turn around every time - again, unconciously. I see Herons, new ducklings, swans and cygnets, the odd water vole, and a brand new Waitrose dropped at the end of it, which is incidentally where I turn around. No access to Waitrose from the canal path - they've missed a trick there, though not sure how much shopping I could do in the walking breaks and not sure how much I could run home with.
