Morning Run

in EXHAUST3 months ago

I just finished a 6.953km running that lasted about 0hh:39mm:58ss !


I saw in the news that there was a solar eclipse this morning, but it was overcast and a little windy when I set off on my run. That made it feel cooler than it was, but I got pretty hot.

Yet again I headed up to Fairfield. It is a good workout as there is plenty of climbing with about 1km straight up West Drive that goes up over 20m and then more as you take the track around the estate. Strava calculates a Grade Adjusted Pace (GAP) that takes account of slopes. I was fairly consistent, but the GAP was quickest on the third kilometre, which also has a fair bit of climbing. I know it takes me a while to really get going.

Not too many runners out today, but plenty of dog walkers. A Sikh guy just seemed to be out for a walk on his own and I saw him a couple of times.

Coming down the hill is a little easier. Just have to keep the legs moving. I do not seem to be suffering any real aches and pains just now. The Asics shoes I have do a good job of protecting my feet. They have been well used though.

It took me a long time to cool down. Even after breakfast I was still sweating, but I just let the shower run-off cool me down a bit.

I was out to see the eclipse later. I set up my trusty scope to project the image. I am sure everyone knows not to stare directly at the sun. I got a few pictures, but just observing something that is happening on a scale of millions of km is impressive. We are just specks on a ball or dirt in space.

Run free and stay well.

We got to see the end of the eclipse. It was hard because we didn't have the proper equipment and didn't want to ruin our eyes.

You can do it with a pinhole in some card. I might have been able to find some welders goggles if I'd had time. Do have to be very careful though. My setup worked pretty well, but kept getting clouds in the way. Family up in Scotland couldn't see it at all and it would be more covered up there.

We were driving into work so I just kept glancing through the trees every now and then. I think we could have gotten a good view if we had been on the road a little earlier.
