Didn't sleep well last night, was awake at 4.30 and toyed with the idea of getting up for a run, but after a bit of toying fell asleep again, and went for the run at 9.00 instead. 4 miles "recovery" run - was already very warm and had difficulty keeping HR low enough without walking half of it. Settled for keeping HR within the 130s, rather than 126 - 132 as it was supposed to be.
Am impressed by Aws's early morning running. Very sensible in this heat, but cant seem to manage to be sensible.
Ceal - so, overall you went faster doing 4 mins run 1 min walk than when doing 4 mins run, 30 secs walk?
The birds are getting my raspberries too, but only the ones they can easily see, - if I part a few leaves and look deeper in, I find plenty for me. They've been fruiting since the end of June even though they are supposed to be autumn-fruiting. The birds show no interest in my blackcurrants, nor so far in my blueberries (which have only just started). They've attacked the blueberries in previous years and I've had to net them. There is a new cat around this year, and although he wears a bell (which must cramp his style rather) his mere presence may be enough to keep the birds wary.
