Week 13 Run 2 – Hitting a Six

Okay,  Paula is still a problem, but slowly improving, so today I thought I’d try the run/walk method to see if I could run six kilometres. No need to rush it, just take a walking break and re-start running, the distance run is more important than time.

It’s a glorious day for it, a bit of shade and not too hot, although heaven alone knows how I will acclimatise back in Italy with 30 degrees+ and mosquitoes…

I hope to do one final run before we leave London, but with a car to pack, house to clear and some re-decorating to finish – yes F..ing and Bo..ks I mean you again, it seems a bit of wishful thinking, Therefore this is a brief post, so I don’t prevaricate before getting down to the clear down out of lockdown.

I ran, I rested, I ran again

I managed 6.09km, my first time since re-start.

It was hard, I’m hot and sweaty and my face is a rather unappealing shade of puce. In fact I’ve just checked it against the latest Dulux colour chart, I’m calling it in as Volcanic Red.

Which reminds me I need to update the runners’ colours page. And the beautiful flowers c/o Salters Hall gardens – my favourite mini oasis in the City. Soon I get to see my own lavender in Italy – yay
