Today was my first time out running when it was still below zero C and it was wonderful The grass was sparkling as if covered in fairy dust and the yellow, orange, brown leaves made a carpet of colour underfoot.
I went back to the woods and fields where I had first started running 4 months ago. This is the field of barley that was green then; it was only harvested 2 weeks ago and the stubble is still here.
I did a quick 5 km and that was enough for today - my first run after the 10K Run on Sunday. I actually paused a couple of times - which is unlike me - once when turning round at the road junction and a guy waiting at the bus stop started chatting (I think he may be/have been a runner too) and once to take the photos. I'm yet to decide if I'll do my long, slow run tomorrow as my thigh muscle is still slightly 'not-quite-right'.
