Evening run-walk-run. Down river over the bridge, back along the other side, over the weir and home.
Note to self: starting to run in your late 40s, stopping for a month, and then starting again aches. Aches a lot.
The boat house house (it's a house on a boat house) at Shillingford is surrounded. More of a boat house island house.
A jog from Padstow over to Trevone-ish and then up and around Stepper Point. Longest run to date, at 9.75km. Brov helpfully pointed to the short cut I took along the low-tide line across the beach & the 250m that cut from the distanace. So close.
More running views are available.
I'm wondering if I run now for the run, or run now for the views.
6.03km and 3 PRs but brov is still waaaaay ahead of me (and F is still waaaaaaaaaaaaay out of sight).
The footpath from Brightwell. A gentle run back from the garden centre with VFFs.
5.97km in 37m 32s (which is
<drumroll /> 6.06 minutes per km) ± whatever imprecision there is with free-Strave-on-iPhone. That's an improvement from week 3 back in May. It's almost as if I'm starting to enjoy it.
And, it's probably worth all the effort just for the running views. There's quite a collection of them!
Why did't you walk down and up the garden for 31m at the end to make it 6k? Finn
A fitting way to celebrate finishing Born to Run (thanks Sean!), my first 30 minute run. Evs.
Third 5k ever. That's ever ever, and the second with F. This time he'd recovered from whatever football-related injury he was carrying, upped the pace by an extra 1m30s per km, and left me back in the metaphorical dust.
I say that it was an injury, but it might have been slow-dad-sympathy.
Running views. The fields are ploughed, so the footpath is rough. In places some kind of inspection cylinders have appeared.
I went for a run. It was still hot. It wasn't a good idea.
The sky was nice though.
A bonus from learning to run (couch to 5k, slowly) is the sunsets.
A lesson from iPhone-in-your-pocket photography, low light things look good, initially, but quickly get over-processed when you view on a big screen.
Following the NHS Couch-to-5 app. On week 3. Gave up keeping up with Rosemary Conley's keep fit video. Let's see how the running goes...
Yesterday's evening run 1 from Brightwell. Stopped about here when Elliot Adamson whispered in my ears:
"Do you feel overwhelmed and confused by the global predicament? You are on the right track."
Nicely done Mr. Adamson. Nicely done.
Currently a run is defined as a series of short periods running interspearsed by similar periods walking. Sounds good though. ↩
