Through in the (cough) “Dear Green Place” today, so I did my usual 7 mile run up along the banks of the sparkling blue waters of the majestic Clyde at lunchtime (god, how I miss it so).
Quite enjoyed it. I’m not running tonight with the club (stopwatch duty at the Summer Series) so I decided that I could afford to “go for it” with my lunchtime run. Tried to push it as hard as I could.
It also helped that it was raining – though still a bit “muggy”. At least the rain keeps some of the dross indoors, glued to their tellies and the Jeremy Kyle show, glugging away on their two litre blue-plastic bottles of jakie-juice.
Anyway. Don’t know if it was the knowledge that it’s my only run today, or the fact that I could, for once, run in a straight line without playing dodge-the-jakie-with-the-devil-dog, but I clocked a PB for the route. Saw a lot of other runners today and at one point even ended up running for a mile or so with a bloke who works in an office a few streets away. I think a few people were taking advantage of the park being relatively quiet.
Might go for a gentle wee recovery run tomorrow at lunchtime, before having a go at the North Berwick Law race tomorrow night.
