Description from Strava:
If you see these tags on Strava they are used by an app to make a post on Hive where I can earn from what I write.
The forecast said it could rain today. When I went out it seemed dark compared to other recent runs. I could feel some dampness in the air and set off up the road.
As I got to West Drive it started to actually rain, but that does not really bother me. You can see my glasses got wet and that hampered my vision. I needed to watch out for trip hazards. I heard some honking as some geese flew over. It was only a couple, but I have seen many more around here at times.
I trudged up the hill to Fairfield to do a lap there. My legs were feeling tired, so I did not push too hard. On the way back down I tried increasing the pace and managed to keep it up for a while. I did another 'sprint' on the way home. Strava shows this increased my heart rate a bit.
I got splashed by a car along the High Street, but I was already soaked through by then anyway. I was glad of a warm shower when I got back.
parkrun is short of volunteers again, so I may need to help out on Saturday. I want to run, but without volunteers it will not happen at all.
Run free and stay well.
