The photo is a hat-tip (literally!) to Whatsapp who suggested I should use a hat! Didn't really need it at a quarter to nine pm but wanted to acknowledge your advice for the future!
As I posted earlier I think Farmoor reservoir is a great place to run. The circuit of the whole thing is 4.6 Kms, do pretty close to the target 5k. Also there is a short cut directly across it if you want a shorter run.
Absolutely beautiful running round it seeing the setting sun on the water, and the only other living things being the ducks, geese and occasional friendly anglers.
Only downside was right at the end I got a strong whiff of goose-poo! Saw the animal in the act, and a few seconds later (downwind) - not pleasant!! Sorry. Too Much Information I think!
When I started on week 1 and was running 60 seconds at a time, and I saw Week 7 with 25 minutes I thought "I'll never manage that!". Well I did - what a brilliant program!
Will definitely go back for week 8 and see if I can get all the way round it. Was about 100 m short tonight. I actually ran the last minute of the cool down walk as I still had some left in the tank.
