Welcome to week 9. It was a beautiful morning to run. Bright, not warm, pale blue skies as delicate as butterflies wings. My plan said 7 miles easy and I was determined to stay easy. The conditions were so perfect that I actually forgot to turn around at the half way point, and ended up running an extra kilometre.

As for the running, I was pleased to keep it slow, I deliberately didn’t push at all, just went with the flow up until 11km when I picked up the pace a little to get home. Signs of Spring everywhere, nice to get away from the pavements too. A run full of joy!
