Another one in the bag. My legs didn't feel as heavy as the last run, which was a pleasant surprise.
I did my first route variation ever today, which was a real breath of fresh air. I was getting bored of the same old laps of the park, so I went on a little urban route up into the town centre and back.
What I learnt from local urban running:
1: there's a lot more debris (dog doo & broken bottles) in the streets than the park.
2: a lot of pavements here aren't flat but at inclines, which is tricky for keeping your ankles safe.
3: there were absolutely loads of people around at 06:30 At least I'd coordinated my look for them - ol' beetroot face with bright red top.
Despite all that, it was really good fun to see different sights.
