Long run this morning – there was cloud inversion in the valleys giving them a mystical feel
I did my long run today. If I head away from Cardiff then it gets very rural, very quickly
I took a tumble while out running today. I left approximately 1/3 of my knee on a dirt track. Of course, as there were people around I bounded up & ran home as if nothing had happened. But ooh, it hurts.
Having been away for a week I really noticed how much autumn has set in on my return.
Went out for a quick run before sleeping a lot. I managed to keep my run streak going in SA. Sometimes it required an heroic effort, for instance when I arrived after 27 hours of travel. I only did 1 mile, which is hardly worth it but it kept the streak going. And then after Brian Lamb [i]made[/i] me drink too much beer, I managed a 3 miler the next day. It will be good to get back to a normal routine now.
Went out for a run today and encountered a warthog and this gazelle (is it?). The whole place has a Jurassic Park vibe. Personally I’m disappointed there’s not a plesiosaur in the lake.
Did the Cardiff Half today. I finished in 2:01, which was my slowest time in the 10 years I’ve been doing it, but I was actually quite happy with that. I’ve been doing the run streak thing and had set the half as my first target, so today marked day 51.
The Cardiff Half is lovely, the whole city comes out to support, with bands playing, people cheering and offering sweets. It gives even a cynic like me a fuzzy feeling.
The finish line for the Cardiff half, which I’ll run tomorrow. I’ll be feeling very grateful to see it then.
Stayed at my parents last night, and so did early morning run from there. Passed this WW1 monument on the way back
Saw this sign on my run today. I didn’t have time to go exploring, but am I the only one to whom this sign screams “Come this way!”
Maybe it’s like Cardiff’s Area 51
For this morning’s run I went up to the Etihad and back. It was 7am so not much happening there.
PS – I was tempted to call this shot “Old Trafford” to see if I could get any angry Man City fan responses, but life’s too short (and mine would probably have been shorter)
