Well, I went out rowing first thing so couldn't fit in my run until after that. Phew! I heard Laura say something about "try to run a bit faster this time" which I don't think I heard on Monday, so I did try. However after about a third of the way into my run, I thought my breathing sounded a bit laboured, so I eased off a bit. Was then cross with myself as I thought I wouldn't even make it to the lamp post past the bend that I had got to on Monday, but as I neared the bend and the music continued, I kept plodding along and passed the lamp post, then managed to get past a barn the name of which I now know (Actually, it's called "Three Barns") I furthered my distance by about 120 metres! (My Garmin lost charge on my morning row, so I didn't have it with me). I met a lady from the village walking her dog, managed to say "hello" and smile. I then met the vicar's wife on my way back with two of her friends, all walking their dogs, however by this time, I was concentrating on my breathing and so could only manage a thumbs up and a smile. Then I felt that I'd hit a bit of a wall, thought perhaps I wasn't going to make it, oh no, not those pesky Gremlins! And I had even noticed some little berries that looked like little bits of popcorn that I hadn't observed until now. Then I saw my beloved horses, the chestnut mare and grey, and they were by the fence again, as if waiting for me, so I blew them a kiss. A little further on, I saw a lady returning home with her dog, I managed to smile, wave and say "good morning". Ha, you pesky gremlins, couldn't have been all that bad after all I also got up my Mini Mount Snowdon (he he) before Laura said "one minute to go" and even had to side step over a dog, on my way up, well it was a bit of a hurdle really, as the medium-sized black canine seemed to go wherever I went, obviously just wanted to play, but didn't realise that I was on a mission! So degree of difficulty up MMS was vastly increased Managed a mini sprint for the last minute, got back to the lamp post that I had reached on Monday, home in time with my warm down walk, so all in all, a great run!
