Well, it is now the end of October, the clocks have gone back and it is dark really early !
I went out for a 13.1 mile run today, extending a route that I’ve run before and arranged a lift home 🙂 I was really pleased to complete this in 2:14 especially as part of it is really uneven and I have to take it slowly to avoid tripping on something and falling in to a river (that really wouldn’t be a good look !). The 2:14 also included one toilet stop and a phone call stop to make sure my husband was on his way to collect me ! I didn’t push it with the pace, just quite a relaxed pace keeping my HR at about 65% so I’m kind of hoping that this puts me in a good place for my next half marathon.. The next one is flat (rather than the hilly off road things I normally do), I guess I’ll just have to wait and see, if I break the 2 hr barrier that would be great, if I don’t I won’t be heartbroken; if I know I have tried my best then what will be will be.
One thing I did notice today was that the closer I get to towns when running the more surprised people seem when you say good morning…. Maybe it is because on the Downs you tend to meet other people that have gone out to enjoy the scenery, on today’s run I was meeting people just walking to get somewhere (work, home etc)
Running also gives you plenty of time to think, today was really quite peaceful, running along by the water, watching the waves and the seagulls…..
