First run of 2018

What was I thinking? I borrowed a car for the weekend and dropped it off during my lunch break. "I can run home from work!" I told myself as I packed my kit in a rucksack this morning. It was harder than I thought. The rucksack did not have strap around the waist so it wobbled all over the place. The battery ran out on my personal flashing light and then it started to rain. I made it home though quite pleased with myself. Thank goodness for rest days.

Is there a knack to it or is it like running you take it steady and find your rhythm?

I am not sure... I have a salamon now and that distributes weight far better. I think the trick is to go very slowly with loads of bodyglide in all the right places!!!
