"How far did I want to go?" I was asked.
About 5 miles I said.
So off we went - Ex Lady Sprinter leading the way - she is getting quicker every week I reckon. V69 started off with XLS and I tried not to go off too quickly to give my legs a chance to get used to the idea of a (slightly) quicker run.
Boy, was it warm.
After a while V69 dropped back to run with me and we plodded along, him telling me how much I have improved since I began running with him- and how proud he is of XLS - who has improved even more!
And so we trogged along, me struggling to keep going without walking (but managing it because V69 told me that I used to stop and now I don't!).
XLS took a slightly longer loop round the lake, which meant we ended up ahead of her and paused for a while. And then off again and plod back to the club.
4.8 miles done.
