I just finished a 6.949km running that lasted about 0hh:41mm:40ss !
It was really frosty this morning, but I got out there in my shorts. The legs were not feeling great, but I set off for a loop of Fairfield. I have been continuing my attack on the ivy in the evenings, so my arms have had a good workout.
The long climb up West Drive does not get easier. I opted to go clockwise around the estate this time. I noticed the other day that the old chapel was being worked on. This has been abandoned since the hospital closed,. but I read that it is being converted to apartments.
The road on the other side was busy, but I think they have roadworks with temporary traffic lights. Lots of people were on their way to work.
I quite often see my friend Jon B out walking his dog and saw him today. He was doing a life video on Facebook for his friends and I was captured as I went past. It was a rare chance to include a picture of me running. Jon does life coaching and fire walking, so is always trying to inspire people. His Labrador sprinted past me as Jon's wife was up ahead. The dog looked like it might jump up at me, but held back. I do not generally have many issues with dogs.
I tottered back down the hill on tired legs. I saw other friend Jon G going home after dropping his kids at school. I contacted him later to talk running as he is a triathlete. He suggests that I may need to rest my legs for a while with some stretching and maybe hot baths. Much as I like to keep my distance up it may be worth trying as I just do not seem to be recovering properly. Jon said he would look at organising some group runs soon.
So I will skip my usual Sunday run. I may try some cycling instead.
Run free and stay well.
