Now that it's dark by 5pm, I don't like running over at the park because it isn't lit and I feel vulnerable. I've been going to the gym but it just isn't the same - and getting there and back and faffing, doubles the time I'm out of the house, so tonight I thought 'sod it' and decided to go for a roadside run.
in the park, but I knew and expected that, and with the chill in the air my lungs immediately protested. Even so, I was thrilled with the run. Absolutely thrilled. You can see from the data below that my run tonight (13/11) was 22secs quicker than the same distance 12 days earlier (01/11).
Lucy and I went for a seaside run and Christmas lunch last December, and we have decided to do the same thing this year. I feel like it will be good closure for me, finishing this year, the same way I finished last year. I am hoping to push myself and try for my first slow 5k.. I'm really hoping to get in a couple of 4+k runs in the interim because I'd really like not to struggle massively on my first fused 5k run!
