Today I went out on my usual one mile run. Nice and early – a bit of a hangover to be honest from last night. The sun was shining and all was well with the world. I went in a completely different direction, turned left then through a passageway which was overgrown with nettles so had to back track. I ran through nettles once before and my legs looked burnt afterwards! After about 7 minutes running I was approaching a mile but my legs felt strong and I felt I could keep going. Ahead of me was a bridge and as bridges tend to be it was a hump. A bit of an incline and then a decline. The urge took me and I decided to run over it, cross it, back over the other side and then did the same again. I ended up running about 1.3 miles – a little over the mile and that was fine. A small bit extra I know but that doesn’t matter. Sometimes a little push at the end of the mile feels like a real achievement. Might have an extra piece of toast with my breakfast now!
