W9R2. Out early to get to junior parkrun for 7:30 so that I could fit this in. Today was rare for me, all alone and running in the morning, just me and a couple of dog walkers in the park. So, headspace run on as my soundtrack today, that was always going to keep it slow and steady (see Oldfloss, I’m a good boy!) and the commentary on my run was so relaxing... not much thought on the process, some on the breathing, but very aware of my surroundings and myself... I have to use this guided run again. The time just flew by and as I wasn’t really aware of time I was right across the park from my car at the end... good brisk walk over to it and joggers on, before another walk around marking the course out and I was set to give my legs a rest and exercise my arms with a lot of clapping. Watching some of them go it occurred to me that one of these could become an Olympian, that 4 year old doing his best running with mum could be the next Mo Farah.
So here I am... ready for my last run of the programme on Tuesday... and I’m taking the original Mo with me... Tuesdays run is “Just Go with Mo”. I can’t wait.
