this time she decided it was time to look at how I run and work out why I get the pain in the side of my back
it was a useful session and she has given me even more exercises to do and suggested I concentrate on not leaning forward so much when I run - I tend ot look at the ground a lot
so today I tried to put that into practice
the forecast was for it to be hot, so I decided I wanted to go out about 7.00 am which meant if I was going to breakfast i woudl need ot get u at 5 for that
so breakfast at 5 and then back to bed for a couple of hours - I kept dreaming about triathlons - I wonder why??
It was pleasant at 5 and I was tempted to go out without breakfast, but I have never tried runnign longer than about an hour without breakfast
so out at 7.15 and down the river path, drink at David Lloryd, on another mile and then home
I took a slightly different route home, to get more shade and ended up doing 9.8 miles - pretty slowly but done.
Highlights of the run?
- a goldfinch that fluttered from bush to bush along side the path as I plodded
- a dark irridiescent green dragon fly/damsel fly (?) by the river - I need to look it up
- seeing the peregrine falcons that nest on the cathedral tower - through a twitcher's telescope!
