Leading on from old floss' post (not including the war faced runner) I thought I'd tell you about my run this morning, it struck me like one of those games you give the kids on a car journey of spotting the road signs.
I seem to speeding up a bit and my pace/breathing seems to be all over the place making me walk a few paces now and then (don't worry, I'm shifting from slower to slow😄). So to try to take my mind off that played a bit of i-spy. I don't normally see many others due to going on bridleways and early in the morning.
Today was very exciting! Two dogs with their lovely responsible owners, (saw one again on the way back ) two tree surgeons, their van - totally blocking the bridleway - so I had to walk past 😄, a farmer in his tractor, a mini digger and a mini dumper truck and three men from the water board and their van. (Funny how they just stand and watch you wobble your way past! Although they did say hello) I actually overtook the tractor, mini digger and dumper truck - I don't care if their top speed is 5mph, it's a scalp and that's what counts! 😄 added to that its a beautiful morning, although cool here in Cambs, the bridleways are improving underfoot - the mud is receding!
I still walked now and again, but got just over 8k in an hour - I'm preparing for the Wings for life run in cambridge on 8th May and am hoping to get 10k under my belt before I'm 'caught'. (I'll be well chuffed with that)
So a happy run this morning, happy running all 😄
