Due to the kids being off school this morning was the first time I have done an early morning run. The alarm went off at 6am, and I staggered into my running gear, consumed a yoghurt, (can't run on an empty stomach), and out the door by 6.15am. It was just about light, so I ran my usual course which runs around a local nature reserve. My only companions were rabbits and the odd dog-walker! I was back in time to coerce teenage son into the shower. As for the actual run, once I got into my stride I did actually manage some kind of rhythm. I can understand why people say it clears their head. Up till now I have been running with my 16 year-old daughter, which definitely didn't clear my head! I am very glad to see the back of week 7, it has felt relentless, as Sarah warned it would. Onwards to week 8!
