Sunday run: Third of a marathon, by @steevc
14.517 km
84 minutes
Nov. 3, 2019

After the driving rain of yesterday it was much better out today. Not very warm, but dry. I was not up very early, but I needed a lie-in. I did not have a fixed plan for my run. I set off on my usual loop, but I tend to extend it if I feel up to it.

There were a fair few other runners out. A couple of ladies appeared in front of me at different points, but I could not catch them up. I ran up the hill to the parkrun course and overtook some other ladies on the way back down towards Stotfold. I opted to head through the wood there where it was a little muddy. This comes out by some fields where the farmer had ploughed across the footpath. I opted to walk across that as it was very slippery and my shoes got clogged up. They will need a wash.

I took a couple of other diversions to stretch this out to one of my longer runs. I will see how my legs feel tomorrow. They seemed to take longer than usual to recover from my midweek run. On the latest post from @exhaust I see I am fourth on the yearly distance despite not logging most of this year on the app. I should get close to 1000km this year, which is my best by far.

At least you were able to get out and get some time in! I was on the road all day Sunday. Then I was on my couch doing work. I should have been mowing my lawn one last time, but the leaves were all wet.


I didn't have much else to do. The weather was not great later, so I was doing stuff around the house. Our lawn could do with a lay mow.
