Think I may be a little repetetive! W7R1 I went a different way (or do I mean 'route', I didn't go backwards sideways or anything like that)...quite a big thing for me, I've been running the same route for 5 weeks. The slope wasn't getting any easier so I'm now going a different way. Think I'm going to end up repeating this one ad nauseam! I wake up very tired and go downhill from there. It definitely gets 'not quite so hard' as the run progresses, and something very interesting that I've noticed is that if there's anyone around, I run a tiny bit faster! I didn't go out till 8am so I had 3 dog walkers to speed up for. I really love the fact that when Laura says 5 mnutes have gone, I think 'is that all?' but when she says 20 have gone, I think 'what,already?' I need to get more sleep before R3 but I have to say that I'm quite impressed with myself for turning out every time!
