I am in sunny Guyana, S. America visiting my parents. I've run 3 times in the past week but have only done about 20 mins. The National Park is quite busy circa 0600hrs to beat the heat. A circuit is about 1500m so I've only managed to do just under 3k. Hopefully, it's acclimatisation. I felt my breathing settle and maybe it's laziness?!! In the 3rd world it's best not to travel with gadgets such as my phone and maybe even my watch so I am lacking the encouraging 3rd party motivation. I'll know more after tomorrow's run.
On my return to the UK it looks like the Active 5k to 10k app is my next step but I like coming back to this lovely fraternity of people.
I am currently reading 2 books "Fat Man to Green Man" and "What I talk about When I talk about Running" ... both are very good!
Take care, people, and you are all excused now. (You know this is part of a joke, right?)
