Got home from work early and I dont normally run on a tuesday but I just fancied it. Glad I did. Just a quick one to the beach and back so around two and a half miles.
Sunday (yes I know I’m two days late) was a recovery run so nice and slow and only around 4 or 5 miles. But I saw some stuff.
Sometimes I read blogs or articles where people seem to view the long run as a chore to be endured rather than enjoyed. I know we are involved in an edurance sport but it doesn’t seem logical to me to do something you actually don’t like one bit. I spend the week looking forward to be outside pushing myself for two or three hours
I know I’m lucky to live where I do with beautiful training playgrounds right on my doorstep. It’s why I’m looking forward to spring and summer so much, more time spent outdoors. All I havr to do is not get carried away and injure myself through enthusiasm again.
And to this end I’m ramping up the milage again slowly so yesterday was 12 and a bit miles to Ogmore and back along the cliffs due to tidal forces beyond my control
The blog that keeps answering the questions you never needed to know the answer to anyway! How long a run up does a seagull need to get airborne?
Just 4 miles done today to start to break in these
One thing about getting wet running to and on the beach is that you dont care about lying in streams to get good low down photos of sunsets.
