Morning Run - To the woods!, by @steevc

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.

@steevc:

I know some people manage to run every day, but I need a rest after this. I do seem to recover pretty well though. That comes from putting in all the hours.

Yes, this one. It's just a bit of fun.

@maxwellmarcusart:

Hmm, I'm not sure I will be able to do that. 50 minutes will be okay for me. Congratulations to Emma Raducanu.

@steevc:

I had to train a lot to be able to do this, but it's a nice feeling of achievement. We each do what we can, but getting out the door is the biggest hurdle.

@trezzahn:

Looks like a good run with a wonderful view you most likely had of that water body I see! Stay active, stay healthy! 👍

@khaleesii:

This reminds me of my brother who loves running, on the other hand, I prefer skipping. I wish I could start running but I always feel like I am dying. Any tips for beginners?

avatar
@steevc:

You have to start gently. Mixing walking and running is okay. Gradually it gets easier and you can do more. Look up a 'Couch to 5k' guide to take you through it.

I kindly ask to explain why you downvote me. Sincerely, Phase

@steevc:

It is because you have refused to verify your account. That is why you get downvotes from @spaminator. Doing that will help matters. You also need to stop creating duplicate posts on @nathangraham that has also not verified. I assume you control both.

You have been told all this before, but refused to listen and muted those who tried to help you.

Hive is a social platform and not just here for you to milk rewards via ecency. The community gets to decide what you earn.

Note that some people follow my downvotes as they trust me to use that well.

This is in your hands.
