The sun shone! The first time during the past 20 days that I have run without my rain jacket! And I was up for it!
It’s amazing what a difference a warm sunny day makes. You just feel so much better and more positive somehow. (Its why I aspire to be a swallow in later years i.e. migrating down to the Southern Hemisphere for the winter to enjoy some summer sunshine)
I decided to run the standard there-and-back run to the end of Alvescot and to push hard (well I did say I was feeling good). The result was a PB by nearly 1 minute and just 2 seconds off breaking 26 mins for 5km.
I was motivated not only by the sun but also by the fact that my total is inching ever close to £1500. The response has been fantastic and we’re nearly at 30% of target raised.
Please keep supporting me as We Love Football Academy is making a real difference to peoples lives.
Early start tomorrow to fit the run into a busy weekend.
20 done. 30 left!
