Week 3 run 8 - sleep-deprived but the sunset was inspirational!

Week 3 run 8 - sleep-deprived but the sunset was inspirational!

A series of ridiculously late nights this week, trying to meet self-imposed project deadlines meant this run (on friday) was the hardest by far. Not the actual running if it - just the effort of getting out of the door in a state of mental exhaustion. Luckily the weather was mild, calm, and the sunset was jaw-dropping. During the 5-minute walking warmup I had to keep stopping to take photos. Meanwhile, thousands of geese were flying overhead in impressive wave after impressive wave. I received a small "gift" from one of them on my fluorescent fleece :) It was all so uplifting that I was in a thoroughly good mood for the running intervals, and really enjoyed myself, despite needing my headtorch to see where I was going. Next run due Christmas Day and the forecast is continuous rain. Merry Christmas everyone!

That sunset is definitely jaw-dropping... I am only slightly envious 😬 ... and so kind of the goose too 😆

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and very happy running 🤗

Thanks JetsOwner! It seems like a long time ago now. I've been running 5ks since the beginning of April and now trying to speed up, and go further too. How do you get the "graduate" status to appear next to your name?
