Did W9r2 and I'm so glad I went out just before 6am so I got the whole run done in the dry. I hate the extreme tiredness of the first 10 minutes. They were excrutiatingly tiring and I'd chosen the sloping path (must check out the gradient!)I ran up the lane and thought I might not make it. It's a real hurdle. I long to start and feel that I'm going to do it! I went on to the canal path and thank goodness the swan family were all on the water because they gave me dirty looks which made me go a bit faster! The path has been used by cyclists and I got some twinges in one knee as I had to almost hop-scotch over alot of the path because they've muddied it and sadly, I don't think I'll be using it until we've had some dry weather!! If I could, I'd take lots of garden canes with me and plant them all along the path to stop them. I have to admit that I've been thinking about getting a bike, in which case, these comments won't be relevant! Well, only 1 more run to go, God willing! Please keep your fingers crossed for me!
