Tired and slightly hungover after a full on VIP day at Twickers yesterday watching the rugby, today was always going to be tough, so I decided on the distraction technique.
Step 1 -choose a new route that I have never run before so that I’ll be looking at the scenery and where I am going rather than thinking about the run.
Step 2 – drag Karen along so that I can follow her -again taking my mind off the run and concentrating more on keeping up with her!
So, after parking the car by the side of the Thames (Tadpole Bridge) off we both went along the river path. It was slightly damp and muddy but looked as if it was going to be a nice little run until…..after about 1.5km we came across and bend in the river where the path was flooded and the way blocked. So, after turning back we headed back up stream to loop up and back for 5km.
Throw in some wind, some mud, and hangover, dehydration and all in all it wasn’t the quickest run ever, however completed in sunshine and Day 22 DONE!
