Sunset and a night run

Thought I’d change things up today, as I continully miss dawn due to bed related incidents (Ie sleeping) I decided to go running at sunset.  Never thought I’d be choosing to do this on a saturday night!

After the sunset I ran back to the other end of the beach so I could run the rocks in the dark with a headtorch – Soooooooo much fun!  Bit tricky to take photos of it though.

However I did take a video – sadly I had the camera the wrong way up so you have to tilt your head :p  Then again i was concentrating on not killing myself so I think I did ok

Hey cool – WordPress auto inserts youtube vids, who knew!

I actually did 8 miles, around half of those in the dark (and back up the spooky path) and I had a blast!  I’ll definitely be back out for more.

  1. The second picture … that’s how you do it! Clouds, birds, sea and sun setting or rising.
    Absolutely stunning 😀 I now remember that last year you were my sunset fix as I don’t see sunset over the sea. Please keep it up!!!

    Now headtorch talk: what type, how did it work, did you get dizzy, did you break anything?

    1. The good news is there will be more sunsets as the nights draw in! The headtorch is one of these https://www.alpkit.com/products/viper

      I got one a while back and its also handy for camping. First time ive run properly in it, It worked superbly, it has a few brightness settings and running with it is easier than I anticipated. Its also on a hinge which is vital so you can lower the light and not dip your head. No dizziness and no I didnt break anything! Get one its amazing how much fun it is – familiar places change completely at night – and the rockpools! Wow full of life (that all scuttles off as you get to them)
