and as she ran a good half yesterday at Reading, there's a chance we might run together!
so after scraping ice from the car I drove down to b-z's place and we made for the canal, garmins set for a 90 minute plod - part of the TrailPlus taper
it was a wonderful morning, blue sky, sunshine, but not too hot and an off road run along the towpath
the plan was a 5 minute warm up walk followed bu runnign to 45 minutes and then back
its a good job we planned to walk the first part - it was seriously uphill to the canal!
and then a downhill plod, past a few locks, where the only noticeable gradients occur, we chatted, about running and runners we know, I guess most of the people who might read this got a mention!
after 45 minutes we turned, a shame really, we could both have gone on, and it was such a beautiful morning but at this stage I would like to have faith in the schedule!
so back we went to a drink of water, a cup of tea, a shower and pub lunch
what more could you ask for!
a great day - thanks, marathon queen!
