After a few days resting up due to a cough and tight chest, got myself up and out this morning armed with a new playlist and my inhaler. Although I’d wanted to finish the plan running somewhere lovely, I knew I wouldn’t really have time before work and have been desperate to graduate so I ran my usual route. It turned out to be lovely anyway - passing the usual people on their way to work, familiar dog walkers, past the shops, round the park, past the pub and then down the long main road, grinning all the way. Ordinary but somehow comforting. So happy to finish. Planning a run in the woods with my dog at the weekend which I’m looking forward to.
( can’t believe I think things like that now - so not me!!)
