Running in the clouds.

No need to travel to the Himalayas. Here in Lancashire the clouds come down to you!

Especially if it’s a bank holiday!

I finally got out for a ‘run’. First mile downhill all the way and managed it in under 11 minutes- I think that’s a record for me. The next 3 miles were gentle uphill on the way back and I walked most of it. Whatever. It’s still exercise!


About mawil1

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.

      It was quite nice actually – just a couple of runners out, little traffic, amazing birdsong! Nice and cool especially after thurs/fri

    It’s so pretty!

  3. An 11 mm is excellent. I only do that in a race, never on just an easy run!

    Our weather has not been kind either. Rain for days. 😦

      It was seriously down hill all the way and even then a bit of a push to keep going all the way! I’m hoping to use that downhill start to trick my body and brain into thinking that it can run a mile at pace 😆😆

    I’m one for running downhill and walking uphill – still got those steps in.

    Lots of cloudy weather going on here.

    Looks like a good day to run, love a little cloud cover sometimes. Loving the field – Are they all buttercups?

    • mawil1 says:

      Yes! Buttercups everywhere, cow parsley and mayflower. The flowers of my childhood😊 I thought about writing about it. Does Wales have a similar look? Its down to dairy farming around here.

      • Gareth says:

        Yep we do but the coverage of buttercups doesnt seem to be quite as wide as yours! I think all the sheep eat them!
