Bit wild out there today 💨💨

Bit wild out there today 💨💨

Gosh, that run was a bit wild and breezy today!! I thought at one point I was going to end up in the lake that I was running round!!!

Later run than usual as it was too dark at 6:30am for me to be able to see where I was running. Hurry up postman with my head torch so I can run in the morning!!

Set off in the afternoon and the run felt very different. Much more effort, physically and mentally, required on my part to keep my legs moving. It does seem that I am an early morning runner. Hats off to people who can find the energy to run in the evening!!

Anyway WK8R2 is under my belt but was the hardest run I've had for a while and I had to pull out all the stops and give myself a good talking to about how I know I can run, so I will run!! Got some strange looks from people thinking that I'd lost the plot 😜

Onwards and upwards to WK8R3 👍🏼👍🏼

You're photos look fabulous Kimchoc08 and you can see how windy it was. Well done for finishing after giving yourself a good talking too. It was probably hard because of the wind as well as being out of your routine. I hope your torch arrives soon.

Looks fantastic! Well done! I’m very envious of people who can respect n in the mornings; I much prefer it but I leave for work at 6.30 so can’t seem to find a way to fit it in.

The pics look gorgeous. What a fab route!

Gorgeous run, lucky you! Was very cold out at 6.30 this morning, something I wasn't expecting or dressed for but it was still light for me, different parts of the country I suppose. I don't know what I will do when it is too dark... pound the streets instead of the rec. I suppose. Let us know how you get on with your head torch, might have to make a purchase too!

Great Run, lovely place for you to run around - be careful in the higher winds though in he dark when you get your torch - lots of dead wood being blown out of trees on my routes at the moment and in the dark, means a bit treacherous under foot - but otherwise the benefits well worth it. Oddly for a man who never used to like early mornings - I love running first thing.
