A bit of fun in the sun

Decided to take it easy and just have a gentle jog around the beach. No music as my phone was out of charge. Did quite a bit of running people watching. Then went off up the hill to test my ankle which held up well. Lovely and sunny and a new 1k PB might have been trying to keep up with an effortless lady runner who in turn was probably trying to get away from a gasping, pavement pounding, sweaty sprinting C25K graduate ;-)

5 mins 21 secs and nice scenery a great start to the day

Happy running

Sounds lovely, although you better watch out that you don't get labelled as a stalker!

Stalking is just above my normal pace ;-)

Good work Gettingfitter- I've been missed reliving B210K through your reports :)

No harm in using other runners as a pacer, or straightening up a little when you pass them ;)

Thanks Em having done b210k I think I'll start a new challenge when I'm back.

I passed the sourest faced runner I'd ever seen yesterday but I put it down to her struggling so I let her off. LOL

Well done GF. Running in the sun is hard work ! Mind you a run on the beach does sound rather lovely. PB!!!!! Better yet!

Well done passing other runners sour faced or not. Will try to take some beach photos next time I'm out

Are you still 'getting fitter' or should you be 'got fitter' now ? I love the idea of the lady runner trying to escape !!! Super fast PB well done.

Don't think I'll ever be fit enough as you can always do a little more. Not sure why my times are coming down but I think it is better when you relax
