Last week had me enjoying the weather with a decent (for me) 7+ miles on Monday evening (I usually stop at 6 on a weeknight) and a full 10k on Wednesday, the latter being a little slower but still comfortably under 8 minute mile pace.
Happy with my jogging, Thursday had me buying shoes for a business might out which accidentally had me buy some bargain trainers – got to love an Asics discount or two.
Looking forward to trying them out now!
Maybe tomorrow if I sleep well enough tonight!
Another jog around Rye this evening. My now almost regular 6 miles was 20 seconds a mile quicker than Monday’s effort and lots more comfortable all around.
Hope I can continue to enjoy a few miles this year.
Not that you’d know it by the weather though, to be fair.
Bruised my ribs by falling off the bmx on Friday so only managed a slow jog tonight.
Still, it’s 6 miles sorted. Better things can come.
I’ve been doing a bit, just not honouring the Janathon ways by blogging about it, is all.
A steady run a bit later than I wanted after work Thursday and another fantastically fun pump track outing last night.
Which, with another early work start this morning, makes a tired man of me.
So I’ll bore my reader no more and shuffle off!
The crisp weather with zero wind made me almost excited about a run this evening.
Keeping my enthusiasm after I’d started seemed a miracle.
Selecting the hilliest street-lamp-lit route I could was remarkable.
Adding an unnecessary out and back to make distance to 6 miles foolhardy.
Looping a block having arrived at the closed level crossing merely done to keep warm.
Maintaining a spring in my step up the last hill incredible.
Enjoying the whole effort how exercise should be.
The shut level crossing even put me dangerously close to a proper race distance. Good job I didn’t look at my Garmin.
Two days without much (certainly enough) sleep make a slow runner.
So tired yesterday I fell asleep at work for an hour, today I avoided that fate but the jog really did turn into a plod.
I could only manage a little under 5 miles, I almost enjoyed a bit of it, but overall I was glad to be done.
And so, done in, it’s to bed. Third time lucky, I hope.
Set off from work for a jog around Rye but it was a little later than usual and, for the first time ever, I caught the 5.25 level crossing just as I approached.
Now the 5.55 stays down for 7 minutes, I know the earlier one isn’t as bad but decided to explore.
And found a route (pedestrian only) which avoids the crossing and gets one out on the opposite side of the town. But it’s unlit, next to a river, and unknown as far as dog shit goes.
So, after a loop around to gain some distance and realising I was a lot later than I thought, I came back the same way to find some mines and potentially enjoy a swim.
Neither happened but I did enjoy a change of route, at least.
More exploring in the spring when I can see, I feel.
