and Juneathon day 3 of course…
Like many Londoners I wasn’t in London today but I did watch the Thames Pageant on the TV. A bit smugly because it didn’t rain here on the Isle of Wight today. There was lots of excitement in the village where we had real traffic lights and a road diversion to allow a part of the main road to be closed for a street party and my OH joined in the celebrations by duct taping a union jack to the house. He did first check which was the right way up.
I finally got away from the tv and out for my run at 5.30pm (Yes, I should’ve got up and run this morning). OH came with me on his bike which was just as well as the traffic was a bit crazy so I ended up running on the left side of the road with the traffic, OH cycling behind me. What do other people do on twisting country roads with hedges? I usually run facing the traffic but today the amount of idiots driving too fast round bends and up hills made it feel a bit dangerous.
I ran my usual IOW loop, which looked a lot different from the last time I ran it (probably during Janathon) because it was so green with at least a foot more plant life everywhere. Putting the Prosecco in the fridge as I left must have done the trick as it was one of my faster of many runs of this undulating loop! An uneventlfull run other than the busy traffic. I did chase a couple of rabbits but fortunately didn’t catch them as youngest son (aka Ray Mears) would have had me take them home for him to do all sort of nasties to and serve up for supper!
3.86 miles run.
Juneathon running total… 11.61 miles
