Having had an amazing run watching the sunrise on Monday decided to seize the opportunity this evening to squeeze in Wk8 R2 before the sunset.
Not as glamorous a run as it sounds! About half way through the run spied a man across the field without a dog or obvious running kit - everyone I ever meet is a runner or a dog walker or both. Managed to spook myself in the dusk that he must be upto no good when he started diagonally across the field towards me. I sped up wanting to reach the busier thoroughfare for dog walkers closer to civilisation - which meant the second half of my run was faster than the first (about as rare an occurrence as meeting a man with no dog or running kit!). By the time Laura said there were five minutes left I was gasping a bit and much further along the route than usual so had to run an extra lap of the final field (slowly).
Anyway came to no harm (out ran the mystery man who was probably innocently enjoying and evening stroll anyway) completed the run and managed to enjoyed the tail end of the sunset (if a bit breathlessly) on my cool down walk. No zombie running app for me in the future - can obviously scare myself quite enough 😂
