This week I determined that instead of reading in the morning I would get straight out of bed, do a bit of Buddhist practice and go for a run. I’ve managed it 5 days out of 7 so I’m pleased with that. However, not all my runs have been first thing, and not all my runs have been runs!
Saturday was lovely so I got outdoors. Friday a did a short but good’ n on the treadmill but on Saturday somehow I wasn’t really up for running so I did a 5k brisk walk instead. I got a lovely view of ‘the trough’ (pictured).
weather was variable today. We had some sun in the afternoon and again a felt like I needed some fresh air so I decided to head out onto the hill. It was about 6pm so I knew that I had a couple of hours before sundown.
It was very cloudy and I could see ‘weather ‘ coming in, but I’d put on my windstopper leggings and waterproof jacket, so I wasn’t worried. However, when I got to the top of the hill, the weather arrived and it wasn’t rain. It was a whipping wind full of hailstones! Frankly, it was a sharp left turn and straight down the hill!
I’ve managed just under 11 miles this week which I’m pleased with. I’m hoping for a similar week next week.
