So, finally I got that elusive 5 mile run in. This distance used to be a short run at one time. Perspective. It all depends where you are looking from.
Overall, a good run with some walk breaks because of terrible roads. The route was an old favourite which has a gentle climb of a mile or so. I was surprised to navigate that stretch with no strain but perhaps the forced breaks might have been responsible for the relative ease.
It’s interesting how running brings up reflective thoughts. Sometimes unresolved issues find a way out, at others it helps me see what I need to change. Running alone is quality me time, a time to shake away from playing different roles. I also enjoy the occasional run with company which brings me back to the world around me. Today, I found running company on the last leg which made for a pleasant couple of km. At the end, I met some of the women runners from the local running group and we chatted for a bit before I walked back home. A Sunday well run.
