Morning Run - Dedication's what you need
I just finished a 6.992km running that lasted about 0hh:39mm:51ss !
Some older Brits will recognise the title. I had a small celebration at beating a personal record today.
It was another dry, but cool morning as I headed back up the hill to Fairfield. I was taking it very gently until I got near the top. Then it was off to do the clockwise Strava segment loop. You will see the shift on the screenshot. The loop does go up and down a bit, but I kept pushing and found some extra speed at the end. I knocked six seconds off my previous time. I know that is not a lot, but any improvement is welcome. This is just over half the parkrun distance, so I need to see if I can keep that pace up a bit longer.
I eased off for the run home as I was tired. I definitely seem to have more energy for getting up hills lately, but a hard run leaves me a little drained.
When I got back I picked a few raspberries to have with my breakfast. It has been a great crop this year. I am also eating apples from our trees rather than buying bananas and we get some eggs from the chickens. I even made the bread I had for lunch. It is good to know where your food comes from.
Run free and stay well.
