Was thinking of sacking off today’s run until the weekend, but the clear skies and bright sunshine tempted me to pop on the trainers and enjoy the moment.
Back on familiar ground after a week up T north with the outlaws, after my attempt at a Derbyshire forest / hill trail last week, decided to head off my normal flat park run and run a route with some gradual but long inclines... can’t really call them hills!! 😂 but testing enough for me at the moment... still looking after my back.
Really enjoyed the change of route, mix of trail and road, settled into a nice pace and rhythm and was happily surprised when jo told me we were 10 mins in, as only felt like a few mins. Next 10 flew past as well and with only 8 mins and two “slopes” left there was a nice downhill section towards the end where I could open up and let gravity be my friend.
All in all a very enjoyable run.
To celebrate I went to my local Sweat Shop and treated myself to a new pair of New Balance mixed trail shoes... now I have to wait until the weekend to try them out, as the wife says I can’t wear them round the house ... !!
Might be tempted to christen them on a park run on Saturday morning, as still not bitten the bullet and plucked up courage to do one yet.
Hope everyone is having a fab week!!
