The one I forgot to put a title on

Up with the proverbial lark (if this particular lark got up at 9) and headed straight for the beach as the sun was shining and I wanted to get a 10 miler done. I have plans for another tomorrow but will see how everything feels before making a decision (plus its just started raining).

I started towards Marcross and had no idea which way to go so I decided to do a figure of eight, 2 beaches, 2 cliffs which work out at around 10 miles. It’s definitely getting easier slowly, I’ve noticed that at the end of 10 miles I’m not particulary tired though then again I stop to take a load of photos 😉

As usual it was a beautiful and peaceful morning to run, didn’t meet a soul for the first hour or so

Not the same beach as photo one – they just look similar due to the headlands

That dot is a kestrel – It hovered without moving an inch for around five minutes (while I munched on a honey and raisin thingy

Runs like that make all the aches and pains just fade away
