Morning Run: Old haunts

steevc just finished a 7.09km run, that lasted for 40 minutes.
This run helped steevc burn 505.0 calories.


Description from Strava:

As he schoolkids are off for the summer I can run past the school without having to dodge crowds. It is a lovely morning, so I did my old route to Stotfold and back. This is fairly flat and I managed a reasonable pace. I need to work on improving that.

I came back via the fields and allotments to get away from the roads. There were a few people out walking their dogs there. I do consider myself lucky to have so much countryside to run in nearby.

It is due to get over 30C again this week, so I will be trying to avoid the heat and making use of our pool.

Run free and stay well.

What's the pool you've got Steve?
I'd love one, but not keen of it being too big..

This one.

Pool

Not sure who made it, but there are loads like this. We got it second hand as someone had never used it. Had to replace the pump and ladder so far as they were not that great. This is about 5mx3m. It takes a while to fill.

You are welcome to come and have a look.

Oooh, that is cool and many ways! Is it just a blowing-up one or some folding bits too?
Think, I've seen it in your garden last time, but wasn't sure about the size..
As I'm much shorter than you, it should fit me quite nicely..
One extra stroke for me.. hehe

You have to blow up the top rim and then there's a simple frame to help it keep its shape. We put it away when summer ends and it does take up a fair bit of space. I think we get enough use to make it worthwhile, but it may only last a few years. It had a couple of leaks when we filled it this year that we had to patch.

I was going to say, it’s hard running in this heat no? Having said that, the other day when it nearly hit 40 degrees I saw someone running.

That's why I run in the morning when it's coolest. Going out mid-afternoon would be crazy.

We saw a guy running out in the open on a day it got to 38. He didn’t look too clever, a bit pasty and very sweaty. I wonder how many people end up in A&E?!!!
