You know that feeling when you plan a 5 or 6 mile run to shake the legs out a bit and it feels gooooood ….. and so you end up running 13? That was today. I was prepared though! After fridays disaster I had my pack with me with water, banana and my homemade energy biscuits.
The tide was in so I was happily tootling up and down the hills and along the cliffs. The sun was shining and I felt good so hey why not!
I ended up going as far as the rivermouth at Ogmore and though I’ve run this route before today I definitely felt better throughout it. I had also squeezed a fresh lemon into my hydration bladder – electrolyte city! (PS if you do this do NOT let the pips go in too – they block the bloody valve)
After a 5 minutes break to let my legs sieze up nicely I headed back and approaching Southerdown wondered if my friend Swampy was working in the Cups as it was Sunday lunchtime – He was! So I stopped for more refreshment
I’m happy to report that although cider is not a PED wolfing down a pint in 15 minutes then running again does mean a fair amount of sloshing in the stomach. Nothing too bad though and was nice to have a change on a run.
So after 8 miles last night and 13 today I’m off to rest the limbs in the pub with more cider which I won’t be runing home after (I’ll take the bike)
Happy weekend =)
