Week 2 in the bag and I went out while it was raining. I’m not sure that wasn’t for this forum I would do more than look at my running shoes wistfully. Instead I have a virtual gallery of eyes checking up on me, patting my back and never patronising Thanks
They are building some houses about half way through my chosen route , I should take a photo each week to see the progress , perhaps I’ll be able to give cheery wave to the first owners by week 9👋
I can’t say that I enjoy the running, but I enjoy the air on my face and the seeing the variety of people out at all times on the local Bure Valley way. The shoppers lugging home straining carriers, the dog walkers, the cyclists, mums and children off to school, tandem buggy pushers ambling and chatting, the local youths hanging about studying phones and kicking balls. All will offer me a smile whether of amusement or sympathy it doesn’t matter it’s a smile and perhaps one day I’ll see a fellow couch to 5k and share that look of grim determination as we walk run past each other .
