Spring is almost here
That was a tough run, not because of the distance or the two extra minutes, but because my hips ached all the way through it.
It didn't help that it was very wet out. Not so much heavy rain but swirling drizzle with bits of mist, ike torn cotton wool, floating at me.
My jacket was soaked which was resting on my hips so that probably didn't help matters.
My son accompanied us today so my little dog danced with delight between us. My son runs on ahead and then back so covers twice the distance but I don't care. I just run at my pace.
We walked home to the triumphant dawn chorus of the local birds. What a joy to hear them so early.
Happy running and good luck to all beginners, those who are mid way and to my fellow, forthcoming graduates. We can do this x
