This morning I decided to try my first early morning pre-work run. Usually I only go for morning runs on my days off, running in the evenings on work days. As my partner had to leave home at the ungodly hour of 5.30am I decided I would get up then too.
Wow! As I walked down to the coastal path I usually run along I was greeted by the sight of the sun just rising over the horizon on the sea. There was just one other runner, one cyclist, the usual man & dog - so peaceful (save for my heavy breathing!).
Although my legs felt heavy (clearly telling me that they were expecting to be horizontal, held up by an orthopaedic mattress at this crazy time of day) I kept plodding on and got a new PB. Not a flashy time (thanks to my new and much more accurate Garmin watch), but a PB is PB nonetheless!
Now for work...
