The British summer has landed.
With the temp already at 20°C / 68°F (and rising) when I set off on Sunday and with Saturday’s beers laying heavy inside me I wasn’t really looking forward to my scheduled long run. BUT I smashed my targets with plenty of firsts for 2021 in the process.
Specifically; first time running in shorts, first time wearing a cap, first time carrying two drinks and (most notably): my first long run without a walk break of any sort. All this in high temperatures and with a couple of long hill climbs. Most of my run was alongside the canal in amazing countryside too and was a great day to be alive.....the runner’s high is strong within me today!
Today’s musical highlights keeping this tubster rolling along were:
Bits ‘n’ Pieces - Artemesia
Irish Rover - The Pogues
If you’d like to play a part in this madness, you can sponsor me here:
Post run time was spent ‘rehydrating’ with an afternoon in the pub.
Keep on running!
