My Last Run

Posted: Yesterday at 14:57

Welcome, HazelnutCH.  A very decent pace. 

0730  My accustomed 40 minutes on paths, trails & promenade, heading up past Crosby Baths and returning via the beach.  Rather murky; a few drip drops of rain.

+1 to that, Becks.

Last night's gardening had its revenge in the form of a aching back - which was strangely fine during my 4 miles of XC and sand hills this morning.  Breezy, refreshing but the sand doesn't get any easier to cover!

Welcome, BecksF - good to have you along.  Speed is relative - getting out to run is the key factor!

A good mixture of paces and purposes, Hermes. 

Out before 7am, unusually early for me at weekends.  Overcast but dry & fairly fresh.  10.2 miles round the lakes, coastal park, up the beach to the redundant coastguard station before switching back on the shore to find the shiftingly soft sandy trails on the way home.

Ye, Nessie, it's outgrown its camouflage and a Streak it now is!  Enjoy your Norfolk break, Nessie: the heatwave was shortlived.

Welcome back, Hermes - you'll soon be back into it.

Ye, Cal, downside of Streaking is not having the important strategy of taking rest days.  Have a grand holiday!

Risked the rumbling thunder and distant lightning at 7am to enjoy a much more refreshing & manageable 4-mile run to the lakes, beach & prom near Waterloo.  Detained by ball throwing for an almost GSD - he has a much shorter coat - and a brown & white sheepdog with blue eyes.

Two hundred days of Not-A-Streak brought up with a warm, sweat drenched four miles round the lakes, dunes & up the beach.  More bearable at 9pm .

Suppose it's a streak now.....

The later/earlier, the better for me - survived rather than thrived in heat. 

Good to see you back, JT, and logging ace mileage.  Spectacular poorliness from Ms Nessie minor. 

8.30 last night: a rather disjoined 9 miles of quiite demanding off road; unsurprising, my best phase was up the beach. 

Couple of days to go: will keep you up to date.

Rather quiet on here atm!  You're all out logging double-figure miles, mind boggling hill climbs or bonkers intervals, no doubt.

I'm not.  0730, greyish day, warm, and with a fair breeze.  Trails, around the lakes and some steep sandy banks & flat trails.  4 miles.

Homing in on a 'not-a-streak' significant milestone.....

Binned the footy in favour of a trail & beach ten miler last night, my first double-figure session for over a year.    The failing light put a stop to more!

This morning's 3 was modest in pace and I'll blame driving rain and a certain lack of energy!
