Didn't feel like it again this morning but I know I have to keep pushing myself to get out. I knew the route I was going to take though and intended to just keep going until I stopped. Unfortunately (!) I checked Gwan after a while and realised I was close to sub30/5k and vanity overtook good sense and I went for it.
Took a short break, then set off again to run the rest of the way home, had to stop to cross a road that isn't usually that busy, then saw that the level crossing in the distance was closed. My first thought was "drat, I could have done with a break but I bet it'll be opened by the time I get there". Sure enough, it opened when I was still a way off. Ah, well better to keep going than have to stop again.
Blow me, if it didn't close again right as I got there - one of those 'do I dare dash across?' moments. I didn't, don't fancy being on one of the regular crossing-jumper photos the local press love to splash on the front page! After standing for over a minute, it was obvious it was going to be one of the long waits so I jogged up and down the pavement for 5 mins. Saw the barriers raising, jogged back down to cross........just as they closed again!! Three times in less than 15 minutes!! And twice just as I reached them! I'm sure the bloke in the box was havin' a laff!
So, anyway, my little run turned into an interval run with a lot more interval than I wanted. I think I deserve a cuppa and a chocolate digestive, so I'm going to have one.
