Morning Run - Blowing my own trumpet

in EXHAUSTlast month

I just finished a 6.904km running that lasted about 0hh:40mm:6ss !

Felt a bit cooler today than Sunday as it is overcast. I headed up to Fairfield to do the loop. On the way there I passed a skip and my eye was caught by a trumpet. I stopped on the way back to get a snap, which is why I have a big dip in pace there. The trumpet had bits missing and there was also a violin case and a broken guitar. I was still a little tempted to grab the trumpet, but I have enough junk.

Running felt like a bit of a slog today. I saw a few other runners out there. Just have to give everyone a bit of space these days. I did the clockwise loop again and still got close to my best time for the segment. I will have to try and get under 15 minutes some time. The best anyone has done is under 10, but I am actually top for my age range! I am at the younger end of that range though.

I went past 500km for the year today. I did have a couple of weeks off running, so hope to keep up regular runs as much as I can.

This route is a lot of climbing. That ought to build some strength. Mind you @rthelly just did an ultra in the Lake District with as much climbing as I have done all year. I do aspire to longer distances, but 46 miles is a very long way to run in a day.

Run free and stay well!

You know, I would have been tempted to grab those things, too, if only for photography props. Kinda neat find!

I have salvaged stuff from skips in the past, but I could do with less stuff now.

I wasn't feeling my workout today either. My dad used to have an old coronet that I would play around with, but when it came time for me to pick an instrument I went with the drums. I wish I had learned something else like the saxophone or something.

Drums can be fun and I think drummers can find it easier to get gigs than guitarists. It's never too late to start learning. It can still be fun, but not always for those around you :)
