T Y, Nessie. No, never had this half term off in 21 years here!
6.30am - a bright, fine morning with merely a breeze from the NW. Trail-beach combo, 10k again, Baths, up to Burbo Bank, back down the sand as the tide crept in and over the coatal park by the Marina. Dug out my Mizuno Wave Harriers - a bit unforgiving on tarmac & concrete.
'As royal cruise ship fever hits Liverpool and the Cunard line celebrates its 175th anniversary, I found myself unexpectedly involved towards the end of my hour-and-a-bit 'late show' run. Wringing the last lumens out of the dusk's sky, I enjoyed a pleasant mile of firm sand before leaving at Crosby Baths. Twenty or so people had taken up vantage points atop sand hills & along the prom and one kind woman explained they were there for the fireworks! Cooling down, I headed for base, missing the pyrotechnics by minutes! The beach will be bursting tomorrow when the three liners cruise in formation!'
Still breathing, still Streaking - thanks for your enquiry, Nessie. Think I may have some viral unnecessariness, causing cough/cold symptoms & affecting breathing a little too. Am OK once I've warmed up but the Streak leaves me only limited recovery.
This week has consisted of 6 x 10k + a little 2.8 miler this eve to bring up 40 miles.
