I was feeling a bit *delicate* after Thursdays staff awards evening (no photos of the new and improved legs, sorry, instead lots of photos of the carpet and out of focus shots....can't imagine why that was) so had another rest day on Friday and travelled up to the lakes for a walking weekend.
I completed my 25 minutes along the side of Buttermere in a rainstorm, complete with hailstones and the wind whipping across the lake against me...weirdly totally exhilarating! I'm used to running on the flat, this was awesome, I felt like an advert for trainers, leaping across the rivulets coming down off the mountain, up and down across tree roots...had to make a couple of enforced stops for gates but it was a really fab run.
I've often thought I don't go much faster than I walk, but I got down to the end of the lake in half the time it would normally take me to walk it, so I had a boost from that too :o)
Meanwhile at home... I saw from the brief phone signal and wifi access I've had that you lot have been storming ahead! I feel part of a little "cohort": Celtprof, sparky66, skyhigh26, shivani05, barmybint, JT24, not forgetting butchdingle... I'm pleased everyone's been making good use of the BH weekend, but need to pull my finger out a bit this week as I'm lagging behind...!
ps Charlie-dog thanks everyone for their comments on my last post; he knows how gorgeous he is :o)
