Just back from a 2 week holiday in the UK (Lake District and Glasgow). I had planned to run more than I actually did, but I only got out once a week. I let myself off in the Lake District as we did some fantastic hiking, some of the walks quite long, so I was saving my legs for Wainwrights. Plus the fact it is rather hilly😈 But I got out one morning and ran across dewy fields full of cows and sheep and staggered up bridle paths in gorgeous morning sunshine. There was more walking than running but I came back exhilarated and very happy. On our walks I had everybody laughing as I chanted "hills are my friends, hills are my friends" at particularly difficult bits! It came in very useful.
Scotland was a bit more frustrating, as we were staying with friends who aren't quite so fit and I missed my exercise. They showed me a perfect running route with woods and streams (sorry, glens and burns), but somehow I only managed to get up early to run once. It was a good feeling and I came back happy, but schedules, too much alcohol, way too much bad food and general laziness made it a bad exercise week.
Back in Munich it is far too hot to run during the day (30C), but I will get my morning runs in before work and try to get back on schedule. August will be the first month where my running progress goes severely backwards, but it's not the end of the world!
Catching up on this forum when I got back has made me sure I will be out there again tomorrow morning and I'm really looking forward to it!
Oh and I missed you all!
