Morning my running friends!
So the first chapter of my running journey is nearly complete. I have just one run left. So to celebrate, I decided to push the boat out, get a bit of excitement into my life, and run a different route. Yes! So...
Instead of turning LEFT along the canal towpath towards Marple, I turned RIGHT towards Higher Poynton. I know I know, astounding isn't it?
I'm left wondering why the heck I didn't do this 8 weeks ago. The path is much better, no muddy puddles, less chance of landing awkwardly and messing up my knee. But no point crying over spilt knees!
The new route has one little drawback, which is that there is a rather steep humped-back bridge, which I had to be rather careful on, as my ankles aren't that used to hill running yet.
So all in all a good run. I had no problem pacing myself, even managed to go a bit faster for the final 60 seconds.
Run 3? You WILL be mine
