Why is it always a shock to wake up early and realise you have to get out of bed there and then for a long run?! The sun was barely up over the mountains at 5.45am and I knew that if I didn't get up and get out fairly soon, it would be very hot by the time I was half way through my run. It was also the thought that, once I am up, then the dogs need to go out, one cat out and one cat in. Then, four animals to feed and an OH to make tea for, as well as tea for me, and something to eat! Phew! Exhausted already!
And, of course, suncream and anti-chafe cream. Oh, and I wanted to take my sun visor this time too, to stop the glare of the sun.
Well, eventually got out (with OH on his cycle), though about 15 minutes later than I had intended. Plus a bottle of Energade and a bottle of water! I drank it all last time, so I knew I would need it this time too.
Quite a nice run really, and I got to the bottom of the other side of Carruthers Hill. Wow! Only trouble with that is I have to run back up it again on my return run.
Not many people out today. Think they've all gone home now after the holidays. Nice and peaceful!
Good run. 19km. Monthly total = 80/120kms done! Just under 2.5hrs I think.
