You know what’s really useful to take with you on a run when you’ve loaded up the iPod with inspirational, thumping beat tunes?
Yup, I was ten minutes down the road when I realised I was enjoying the sound of birds and not the sounds of Lady Gaga.
But today is chill-out fun run day before training tomorrow, so – meh, who cares?
Spring is coming, the hedgerows are heady with the scent of hawthorn and the birds are tweeting their little beaks off – some pictures from my run round Stenner Woods below.
I made it round in 48 minutes, a pleasant four-mile trot around the river paths and no negative thoughts at all. I actually overtook a runner. Ok so she was walking at the time, but result!
