A nice morning for a run today. Sun was shining, but not too hot. For a change I headed north towards Langford. I started off going to the station to go under the main road bridge and up the ramp to cross it. The traffic along there is pretty noisy, but I try to stay away from roads most of the time. That is a benefit of being near countryside with lots of tracks to run along.
I was inspired by Emma Raducanu winning the US Open last night. That's a big deal for British tennis even though I am not a dedicated sports fan. It was a good match by both players. I also watched the movie Rush about F1 drivers James Hunt and Nikki Lauda. I remember watching those guys race. Some people risk their lives in sport, but I am just running for fun.
I went up past the Champney's health spa and the fishing lakes to Langford. There were a few people out walking there and I saw a group of cyclists. I was going to do the route across the fields I have done several times, but spotted a gate that led me into the Baulk Wood park. I ran around the edge of that which was partly by a stream. A few dog walkers around there, but generally quiet.
Then it was along the road for a while before cutting through to the path by the lakes I had taken on the way out. I took the loop around Henlow Bridge fishing lakes where lots of anglers were out.
Back at the station I had a little walk to get over the footbridge as I was tiring by then. I have done quite a lot of activity this weekend. I have a gig this afternoon with the band.
It was a good run over all with a couple of best times on segments.
Run free and stay well.
