"When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden BUTTERCUPS!"
Sorry Wordsworth, but the field at the bottom of the valley full of buttercups was just as magical as your daffodils.
Really didn't feel up to going out today... one too many G&Ts last night. Tossed and turned all night... Time to cut out the alcohol, at least while doing the 5x50 challenge!!!
Reading everyone's blogs made me feel ashamed of myself, so I got my kit on and out the door, somewhat later than normal (I generally run first thing, work permitting).
I went really slowly and chose a different route... which turned out to be virtually all uphill. Not to worry, I thought, at least it means I'll get back to "civilisation" during my cool-down walk.
It was a mean hill and I'm sure that at times I was going slower than I can walk, almost speed walking rather than running. But I did it! Although as soon as Laura said the 28 minutes were up I started walking, no way was I going to do any extra mileage after that!
Now to track my km on 5x50.
By the way, if you don't know already, Malcy's set up a total count page for our team: mmcinteractive.com/5x50/
