A nice run

Well, I was looking forward to trying to repeat my 5k in 30 min performance of the other night, but, my husband decided to join me and insisted we do a different route - one that involves a long ascending hill on the way back - so I knew I was on a hiding to nothing! That said, I did manage to complete 6k in 40 minutes, so I feel pretty OK about it, especially since the homeward ascent is pretty gruelling. Most of the run was spent with me viewing the rear-side of my husband as he sped off...but I was thrilled when an elderly lady who was out pruning her roses said to me, 'ooooh, there's a nice young man in front of you, hurry up, and you might catch him', I replied, 'that's OK, he's my husband - I'm sure I'll catch up to him eventually'!
