I’m back running with the boys again....which translates as our running collective has started up at work again, and since one of the only other girls to regularly come along has moved offices, I have become the sole regular lady-runner.
As I predicted post-last night’s yoga class a variety of muscles hurt so was actually looking forward to easing them off with a run at lunchtime. Was heartened to get a email say that as it was our first outing after the xmas break that it would be an easy run....liars. As it was the regular more seasoned runners (I don’t include myself in that category at the moment) that turned up we ended up doing a fairly non-gentle run up along to the Pentland hills. Yes, this meant even more hills, with me struggling to keep up with the boys. Don’t worry though, they did wait for me at the top. There was also a very muddy bit along back to the road, didn’t’ want to fall and damage myself with early on in Janathon so once again fell behind. Need to get myself some trail shoes methinks!
On the up side, it was a lovely sunny day and the views around the Pentlands are rather nice. It was also great to be running in the daylight again.
End note: JogBlog kindly mentioned that having tried to read my blog she couldn’t get past a splash screen asking to take part in a survey…if anyone has similar issues, can you let me know and I will compose a disgruntled email to the powers-that-be.
sole lady-runners: 1 (obviously, though some may dispute the title of‘lady’ for me.
