Week 8 Sunrise

So decided to get up early today so I could get started on Wk8 before going up to York to spend a couple of days with daughter 1 who's at uni there.

Not run in the morning dark before but started on usual evening path along well lit bypass. Once it started to get light I then cut across onto fields which meant I could watch the sunrise as I ran .. a whole new life experience!

At 10 minutes I wondered if I could do 28. At 20 I knew I would. At 5 mins to go I even sped up a bit!

A life changing run and what a way to start the day. I feel soooo good 😊
