A tale of two runs

I ran on wednesday and thursday this week. Two runs that couldn’t have been more different. On wednesday I got home from work, felt fine, got changed, warmed up, off i went and within a mile felt atrocious. Not the first time this has happened. I think it’s a nutrition thing. I made it to the beach and back for around a two and a half mile dispiriting run.

On thursday after work I strapped myself back in and wondered how it would go….. I felt fantastic and I flew, the HR stayed where it should, the flow kicked in and it felt effortless.

And the sunset helped ….

Oh yeah and I am also Captain Sheep Rescue!  Saw this idiot stuck in a fence so had to stop to get him out, Dumb sod was driving forward into the hedge while I had to pull to release him. Tug of war between man and sheep is the outcome….. Might have looked a bit odd

I pull you push …. eeeediot

So lesson from this learned is that a bad run is just a bad run and always get out cos there might be a sheep stuck in a fence somewhere that needs you!
