I went out for my first post graduation run this morning and I've been reading all the posts on here about all the exciting and experimental things everyone has been trying with their new found freedom. However, I decided I just want to consolidate my 30 minutes. Naked running, not yet headphones are still a good "do not disturb" sign for passers by. Stepping stones sounds way too scary and I'm not sure I want to be told what to do for a while. So I set off with Runkeeper keeping me informed and my favourite playlist in my ears to try a new route.
I set off through the village again, very bravely passing the industrial units this time, pleased to report there was no-one about! I actually didnt cross paths with anyone today - just a few dog walkers across the fields. I travelled in the opposite direction to normal along the sea wall and continued around the previously impassable section - now freshly cut - won't be doing that again! It is so uneven with large cracks in the clay that I was forced back to snail pace - I've been quite enjoying tortoise mode 😀
Sadly I ran out of trail so had to retrace my steps for a while then turn but the new shoes were good, I felt good and I managed to add an extra minute to the end of my run only stopping when I reached the steep hill.
I just need to find a nice circular route, the disadvantages here in a small village is that circuits tend to be too short or way too long. One day .... Enjoyed my run though which is the important bit😀
Forgot to hit post this morning - wondered why nobody had replied!! Glad I did now though, I've had a really sh*t week at work and it's only Tuesday so much so that by the time I got home that lovely post run high had totally evaporated but then I spotted the card and remembered my lovely friends and hubby gave me this card for graduating C25K😀 I'm smiling again now.
