Sunday being unable to join my running buddies for a 9.5 mile with an elevation gain of 1,200 ft, (lucky escape) I decided to do the next best thing and drive to the start/end point with shortbread!
On arrival I had about 5 minutes to admire the amazing views and feel sad that I had not made it out with them, but the lungs were quite pleased.
I was not there long till the duo arrived, declaring themselves knackered and in need of cake. Cake I could not offer, but shortbread yes, the calories it seemed were needed. Quick plans made for the next training session and I let them go home for their showers.
Last night I managed my first run in a week, it was with the club around another town and yet more Christmas lights. Oh boy the legs were made of jelly though and I was puffing like a steam train. It was great to be back out there though, finally but think its going to be a while for normal service to be resumed though.
