It looks like I missed some rain this morning, but it was bright and clear as I set out after a bit of a lie-in. I need at least one of those each week. There were lots of puddles out there. For a change I decided to do the loop in the opposite direction to normal. I find I notice different things when I do that as well as discovering different uphill stretches.
It was a bit windy in places, but not too cold. I did a couple of extensions to get it over 10km. I have already done 60km this year, which is more that I was doing a year ago. My body is not complaining too much, but it will have to adjust. The pace was fairly variable with some quicker kilometres when going downhill. As usual it took me a while to really get going.
I need to think about what events I am going to enter. I want to do the Greenway Challenge half in May, but fancy doing other half marathons.
Not much wildlife about apart from a squirrel on a fence near home. I listened to the Bad Voltage and Guardian Science Weekly podcasts.
Have a great week!
