A New Week

Anticipating a drop in temperature I had laid out a pair of leggings and a lightweightfleece before I went for an early night.

This morning I was up before the alarm went off. There was a light covering of frost on the cars but no ground frost and the air was crystal clear.

I didn't see anyone until I crossed the hump back canal bridge out of the village onto the main road. Another runner approached me and as we came closer she put her head down to avoid any eye contact and we did not exchange any greeting or acknowledgement.

I pressed on and completed my run in neither my best or worse time. I now feel ready to face the day. I am really enjoying my running.

Happy runnings.

  • Lovely to from someone enjoying their running. I'm loving it too. I go out before sunrise and you can watch the frost forming on the grass as you run. At one point I felt I was running through a little sea of chrystals then as the sun actually came up the whole expanse turned into a sea of white. Really beautiful. I regretted not taking my phone that day though as the sunrise was absolutely stunning but I had no camera πŸ™„

  • You paint a wonderful picture with words you have no need of a camera.

  • Beautiful run... wow.. I can see the frost sparkling :)

  • An early morning run defiantly sets you up for the day

  • Sure does Molly.

  • Ooh get her! I would have given you a thumbs up or a cheery greeting 😊

    So pleased you are enjoying your running ☺ I bought a yellow running fleece for my first winter but I only, wore it once and it was far too hot 😊

  • I understand we are all different. Some acknowledgement when we the only folks around and we passed within feet of each other. Perhaps I should have greeted her anyway but all the signals were not to so I respected that.

  • NIGHTINGALE1 has there been a day when you were NOT up before the alarm? ;)

    Early early morning is just the best time to run isn't it (although my reasons are probably very different)! I just love how you are loving it, it sounds like you've been a runner for ever :)

  • I am still horribly slow - fat lad at the back - but I don't mind at all as long as I continue to enjoy it. I am now happy to take it nice and easy.
