The downhill end of a run. Heading home from a nearly-5k.

It's been a (long) while but worth it for the views this morning.

Running the lane. It's been a while so it was slow and short.

Evening run-walk-run. Down river over the bridge, back along the other side, over the weir and home.

Running again

Running views

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


The boat house house (it's a house on a boat house) at Shillingford is surrounded. More of a boat house island house.

Nearly but not 10k

Around Stepper Point

Around Stepper Point

Around Stepper Point

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.

End of 6k

Way home

6.03km and 3 PRs but brov is still waaaaay ahead of me (and F is still waaaaaaaaaaaaay out of sight).

Brightwell Footpath

Brightwell hill-ish

The footpath from Brightwell. A gentle run back from the garden centre with VFFs.

Couch to 5.97km

5.97km in 37m 32s (which is <drumroll> </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.

5k with F

Running the loop

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

There's a footpath there somewhere

A post appeared next to the footpath

Running views. The fields are ploughed, so the footpath is rough. In places some kind of inspection cylinders have appeared.

Running Sky

I went for a run. It was still hot. It wasn't a good idea.

The sky was nice though.

Running Landscapes

Running Sunsets

Running sunsets

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.

Couch to 5K

Running path

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...

Evening run

Evening run view

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.

  1. Currently a run is defined as a series of short periods running interspearsed by similar periods walking. Sounds good though.
