Yes, I said that I would go this evening as soon as I got in, so I checked that ma-in-law was happy to continue supervising the girls, and off I went. Week 7 run 2 done
Nice evening for it - sunny but not too warm, and a lovely bit of breeze. I decided I couldn't face the uphill hit right at the start of the run, so did an extra road in my warm-up walk so I'd have a couple of minutes running before the dreaded incline (hah!) - and it was fine! First couple of minutes were as horrible as ever, but by now I kind of let few gremlins have them, knowing that I'll shake them off quickly enough.
So, up the hill, keeping it slow and relaxed. Ish. Will I get to the end of the lane before the half-way point? Don't feel like going down the bridle path this evening. Oh good, about 15 seconds after I turned round to come back St Laura said I was halfway through.
Back up the lane, aware of just how much easier it is now than it used to be. Along past the farm driveway and down towards the village. Laura says five mins to go; I'm definitely running faster than on the way out. Need to keep going though, so into the field for the last couple of minutes. Turn back with one minute to go, so I'm heading back towards home. And we're done! Yay!
Pup behaved herself pretty well, so I thought I'd share a pic of the view I get while running
