Today my route included the canal path... I passed a swan with 4 enormous teenage cygnets and this worried me a bit, but they left me alone. Then I passed a man asleep under a bridge, this nearly scared me, because I thought it was rubbish bags and I hated the thought I might come across rats. He didn't wake up as I thundered past, and I had to fight the temptation to have a swig from his beer can. I also saw lots of early morning bunnies. I wish I could apologise to all the people on boating holidays as I must have woken them all up!
BUT my run felt like hard work and I couldn't go any longer than 28 mins and, when I got home and Google mapped my run, I'd 'only' done 3.9K. I'm so disappointed. I just don't understand. Mainly flat, but hard work. I blame Google maps. I'm hoping it's not too late to ask for birthday donations from my rellies to put towards some sort of device to measure distances properly. Does anyone have any reccomendations please? In a weeks time, I should be graduating and I just can't see how. 3.9K indeed!
