Hello, sorry for not following my morning routine - run and then visit the Forum! Irritatingly had to head out straight after run to catch train to London for a day of meetings. Will you forgive me?
I hope so - wouldn't want to ruin such a promising relationship.
Anyway, woke up this morning (irritated my wife by hitting snooze on the alarm, rather than switching it off - I was out of the door with running shoes on so completely oblivious by the time this problem reared its head).
There seems to be a timing issue - if I go out earlier - there's less traffic - but universally they drive like "muppets" and not the cute "Kermit the frog" type - the i'd happily punch them after almost being knocked off my feet by the backdraught from a massive tanker doing at least 60/70 in a 40 mile an hour zone, or the - no need to move over I have a BMW doing over 70 type.
If I leave slightly later - more traffic but at least they slow down - some of the time.
Any way I won't let my near death experiences detract from my life enhancing ones. Great run today - covered more ground 5.1k total including the 5 minute warm-up/and warm down. Now that puts me at 4.1k in 28 minutes, so I'm feeling pretty good about that pace not quite 5k in 30 minutes - but definitely moving in the right direction.
Hope everyone had a good weekend - and happy running.
One more run in the bag.....5 more to go to Graduation! (pinch myself moment!)
