A Short Run

Back into the old routine today and out for an early run. Last week I ran in trackie bottoms but this morning I donned my shorts.

I ran what has become my usual route but added a little spur to slightly increase my distance over last Monday.y pace also increased a little over last Monday too. I will try and continue these small increments.

I met a lady runner who was covering the ground with the grace and ease of a gazelle while I lumbered along like a snorting wildebeest crossing the Savannah. She smiled and wished me a good morning.

Happy runnings.

  • Yes it has become mild again. The lady runner probably thought you looked like a gazelle too 😊

  • I'm impressed you are in shorts. I would love to run in my capri leggings (which I use for the gym) but two of my outdoor routes are overgrown with nettles and brambles, so full length leggings are essential for avoiding scratches and stings.

    I loved the picture of gazelle vs wildebeest. Made me chuckle.

  • I have the same problem with nettles and brambles - not sure how people survive such paths with shorts!

  • Happy runnings to you too! It was very warm out there yesterday. I was far too hot in my long tights.

    Lumbering along doesn't matter. You were running so hats off to you!

  • I'm glad she wished you a good morning. That made me smile. 😊
