Went out for a 45 minute run yesterday lunch time round Regents Park.
There was snow on the ground and falling when I left home in the morning, but by the time I went out that had all gone and was replaced by miserable sleet and a cold wind.
To mix things up a bit (after running on the other side of the road last week) I went around the park clockwise for the first time ever – you see things so differently! At about halfway there was a hill (well, not hill but more than just an incline) I’ve never noticed it as a significant downhill when running the other way around – weird
Since I’ve been Chi-Running I have started to notice other runners form a lot more. It’s fascinating; there’s a man in Finsbury Park who looks like a frog running on his back legs, but yesterday there was a lot of men running with one arm by their side and the other bent at the elbow and swinging – I wondered if it was some kind of code, or experiment, very odd – makes me want to go up to people and ask if they know they’re doing it!
Today is a lovely lovely rest day, no aches from running (touch wood) but still have my stupid cold and the last remnants of back ache from kettlebells last week……
