So. The clocks have gone back an hour. The weather was good (for late October). Social calendar clear. I couldn't think of any good reason to put off Week 1 Run 1 any longer.
Made it, but not without incident. 1. Linda refused to talk to me after the introduction to the run - something wrong with the download - or perhaps it was something I said. Used the stopwatch on my phone instead. Bit clumsy but OK. 2. Someone put two small hills in the way of runs 5 and 6 on the way back - don't remember running down them on the way out?? 3. Hurt knee on run 9 (downhill) but it was OK to run (slowly) on the final lap
