Yes, I was lazy yesterday and never went running, but today, that wasn't going to be allowed to be an option. After a morning lazing around the park, reading "The Outrun" and drinking tea and coffee, a decent run was required to have me feeling a bit trimmer.
In the end, I did the Tour of the Two Lakes, he route I wrote about for my colleagues the other day.
I'd picked a good time of the day, as the sun was beginning to lower, making the reflections on the water look more spectacular, and the clouds brassier in colour.
There were lots of clouds to see as well, strange rain clouds scudding through on the cold Nor-Easterly, bringing rapid but short lived squalls into my face.
After becrying that only ivy seemed to be in flower at the moment, running along the cycle path revealed plenty of colourful toadflax, and also a bush-tree that blanketed parts of the path in small white flowers. Now there is also fungi coming into being, and I found a beauty out today.
9km I did in the end, under a lovely light, and I felt good for it. Need to do it four times a week!
