running blog



I was a little more lively today (once I’d had some breakfast and two coffees) and learned that doing things a little differently was just what I needed to give me new energy.

I was enjoying listening to the radio this morning. I couldn’t delay my run today so worked out how to use the radio on my iPod and set of for a planned 5 miles continuing to listen instead of plugging in the Bee Gees.  I also had the forethought to take some cash with me so I could get some haggis in M&S on my way home.   (We didn’t have Haggis yesterday because my husband was away and didn’t want to miss out!).

Whilst cutting across Hyde Park on my run, to the loo, the criss-cross paths made me think about having a first attempt at runart. (Click on runart blog link to see some of the good examples!)

As you can see its more like rundoodle!  But we all have to start somewhere and I had an enjoyable time running round and round listening to the radio on what turned out to be a beautiful day.  So much so, I was over 5 miles before I realised and still had to run home. I am now determined to go back and try to be more systematic and cover most of those paths and start to think about drawing a picture!  Might add interest to my long run this weekend instead of 3 circuits of the park on the same old paths.

I paused to buy my haggis on the way home so shopping was also completed and the last mile of my run was with a bag of haggis in tow!
