A good long run

6 Comments

I was rather late getting out for my long run today.  It probably had something to do with the box of empties which I put out for recycling this morning!

When I did get out I had a really good enjoyable run and was thankful for many things today…

  • My delayed run meant the rain was easing when I left home
  • The cool light drizzle during the first half hour washed away the last of my thick head
  • A group of youths cycling on the pavement actually apologised that I had to detour to avoid them!
  • The peace and quiet of 4 (more empty than normal) London Parks on a wet Sunday
  • Only being asked directions by 2 sets of tourists
  • The loo attendant letting me in at 2 mins past 4pm when she was about to lock up
  • A good feeling run on what ended up being a beautiful afternoon when the rain cleared.
  • Getting to my door and my Garmin reading 12.01 miles!  Job done.

Janathon day 26.  12 miles run

  1. I love it when procrastination is rewarded with nicer weather and zenner running 🙂

  2. Sounds like you really enjoyed it!!

  3. If only running was always like that!

  5. Great stuff. I got the reward of lack of rain by delaying my run via a multitude of excuses throughout the day too!

  6. Brilliant – rather surprised by the youths and the loo attendant!
