Friday was wet, really wet so we just went for a walk to the beach and along the coastal path, but I don't think I could have run anyway as I found it hard just walking up the slope from the campsite.
But Saturday was brighter, less windy and dry so I went for a birthday run and I really enjoyed it, although I did have a slight technical issue!
Towards the end of the five minute walk at the beginning my old Pulse phone which I have been using for the podcasts just stopped and would not switch on again. Luckily I had my other phone with me. I had downloaded the podcasts but found it a bit big for the waist bag I use but that morning I squeezed it in just in case of emergencies as I was on a small country road (not that it would have been any help as there was no phone signal!) Anyway, I was able to use that. I couldn't work out how to fast forward so just started the warm up walk again.
After all that preamble, it was a great run. The first eight minutes went well but the the second was amazing. I loved it.
When I was walking back to the campsite I was nearly crying, but not from pain or frustration, I was just so pleased with myself. (I am not generally known as an emotional person so this was very unusual for me!) Wow!
I probably can't fir in the third run until Wednesday, although I am raring to go.
