I really should've got up and run this morning before work. Unfortunately because
of the weather my body found it very difficult to wake up early ;0) So instead of
running report I'll tell you about the dog walk.
The weather was a bit iffy this afternoon and I was convinced the dog wouldn't want to walk far so wasn't really prepared when he lead me towards a walk we've only done a couple of times in recent weeks. After following an unmade road away from home the track leads on to an area of Newhaven called Castle Hill Nature Reserve.
This is most definitely an "on the lead" walk as in some places the path is only a couple of feet from the cliff edge. It's lovely when the sun's shining and there are great views out to sea, even on a cloudy day! Today's dog walk was 4 miles!
So now to my run. I was feeling quite tired following the dog walk. Clenching one's buttocks whilst concentrating on a rabbit-loving Jack Russell X is exhausting! I was only go to do 2 miles as a recovery run following yesterday's 6 miler, and if I'd gone this morning it would only have been two, however I actually ran 4 miles. Not only did I run 4 but I also shaved off a minute of the best time I've done that route. It was a good time to run, only a slight drizzle, light breeze and quite cool. The roads were very quiet because of the football too so all in all I'm quite pleased with myself tonight - so much so I celebrated with a small glass of wine with my dinner.
