My first run in the dark! Managed to avoid the rain and it was a pleasant night. Run was pretty good start to finish and tonight's wildlife was bats!! 🦇
To be honest I didn't feel like going out (nothing to do with the dark or weather). This run should have been yesterday but the winds were too strong. I thought loosing a day I would be champing at the bit to get out but I wasn't. Not really sure why? Maybe sleep and food related? It's two things I've been thinking about a lot anyway. I'm definitely not getting enough sleep and my body could do with being better fuelled especially now the runs are longer.
Putting that aside I enjoyed the run. I hoped I would - I knew I would! Felt like it blew the cobwebs off a bit! I set off up the hill straight away, I've been playing about with my route around the park and thought I would be better mid run however I'm preferring it at the start. It really knackers you but it feels good after and my breathing seems to regulate better too! Off round the tarmac and onto the meadow where I almost fell on my arse as it was so soggy! But it's my favourite part so I did another lap! Then saw the bats!!! I don't know why but seeing the wildlife really spurs me on!!! Park was getting too dark so ran around the houses and it was good to go somewhere different! My cues were all different-not sure if that was on purpose so you don't wait for them, but I did!!!
I feel this has turned into more of a waffle than usual!!!! So I'll end with saying I'm loving my new running gear, glad to get out of the hubbys tops and trousers and wear something more flattering!
