I headed back to Richmond Park this evening for a quick(ish) run around the park with the novelty of daylight in my favour.
It felt pretty tough and my accompanying bike buddy was moaning rather a lot about the distance so I cut the route short by heading up a unfamiliar track near Ham gate. Ended up spotting some great tracks for future runs and I managed to sneak up on a rather fetching Heron in one of the many ponds.
Total distance was 8km. Doesn’t look like I will get a proper long run in this week as I am booked in for BPTT on Saturday and the crack of dawn 10k showdown in the shopping precinct (Bluewater) on Sunday. This means a brand new t-shirt is expected for my page any day now – its been hyped big time so I’m pretty hopeful for a page topping star.
