I consider anything 10 miles and over a long run, based on that theory I only have one more to do next week. (Hooray)
I don’t run with an Ipod so my thoughts wander around various topics, sometimes I wonder how I got on to a topic and retrace my thoughts to discover the path they took, now this can be worrying, my attention span is brief at the best of times but much worse when running
Things I thought about today:-
- Did those surfers pay to park there all night
- Tides in
- Its windy
- Donkeys as landscape gardeners? (you had to be there)
- Where does that footpath go
- What a nice lady to tell me I was doing well
- Paula Radcliffe counts to 300 when she runs, let’s try that 79, 86,87,88,89, now where was I 100, 101 god that s
- He must be fed up sitting in that box on century duty
- That trains going to Paignton, have I been there?
- It’s the 7 April, my Grandma’s birthday. Miss her. What would she make of all this?What would she make of Madam? Hope she’s watching.
- Lots of people out today, why are the cyclists so miserable, must be saddle soreness
- I can hear church bells, that’s great, so glad I don’t run with an Ipod
- Oh my goodness that cyclist nearly had me as a handlebar ornament
- She is running well, alright for her she’s going downhill
- That Pub looks nice, The Puffing Billy they must have named it after me, I bet the train passed closer at one time
- Two miles to go that wind is fierce right off the sea
- The car, 15 miles, thanks goodness the car, stretch, in the car, phew.
It was a good run, thank goodness, my head needed that.
After lunch we headed to Beer to do one of our tomorrow lists, that was to walk from there to Seaton. The wind was fresh, not as nice as yesterday but we soon warmed up. Today was also the Ex to Axe run, I made sure the family moved out-of-the-way for the runners. I felt for them, what a hard route, 20 miles of up and down hills, one I won’t be doing that’s for sure. When we got to the edge of Seaton we could not proceed further as the road had slid on to the beach and is now closed forever! The only option is to walk on the beach (stones) to Seaton, which is in the distance in this picture.
My legs said no, they hate walking on stones and its definite NO after 15 miles so instead we threw stones in to the sea and got an ice cream at the top and walked back to Beer.
Madam was thrilled to find this happy stone!
