After completing W6R1 on Friday night I was due to do run 2 this morning. However I consumed a lot of rich food yesterday along with red wine, consequently I was feeling rather sluggish and not in great shape for running this morning. As the morning was my only option today and with it being a short gap from Friday night to this morning I figured an extra rest day could do no harm,. Inspired by reading about an old favourite walk in The Times yesterday around Marshside RSPB reserve I decided to do a 5K walk instead.
Lovely sunshine this morning and lots of people out with binoculars and cameras - must be some rare bird there at the moment. It's times like these I feel lucky to have somewhere like this on my doorstep. But the walk - wow, bring back the running! I felt lame by the end. Everything ached; groin, shins, ankles feet - what's that all about?! I was ready for a sleep when I got home!
So after years of walking, and only 6 months of this running malarkey, I can honestly say - walking? Give me running any day!! Roll on W6R2 😃
