I wanted today’s run to be special, sort of celebratory. Why? To celebrate being home after 3 weeks away, to enjoy the Autumn countryside, to rejoice at having a day off, to mark the beginning of a new training cycle ( the bit where I run instead of not running!). I also wanted it to be a bit special because I’d said that I’d do the WordPress virtual 5k #wwwp5k which I heard about on neveradullbling.com.
So I took a drive to nearby Tockholes where I knew I could get onto a lovely woodland trail by the reservoir.
It’s a good job I went for a special place as my run itself wasn’t too special after a month of infrequent and erratic runs! I had to take it fairly slowly because of all the tree roots and it was quite undulating and muddy.
Some lovely colours though!
3.14 miles, I think that’s 5k, albeit very slow with a lot of walking!
