After a couple of weeks of not wanting to go anywhere near my running shoes after the half marathon, I got back into a bit of running thanks to a new favourite 5K sunset running route along Brent River (uphill all the way, downhill all the way home – my favourite type). It’s amazing the difference longer evenings make to my willingness to run or really do anything after work.
The spring weather (which seems to have promptly disappeared) has also helped me with trying to convince Jason that hiking is a fun way to spend a Saturday, and we had a nice little trip to Devil’s Punchbowl in Surrey a couple of weeks ago. It’s a super pretty place to walk and enough hilly sections that it’s better training than my local West London walks along the river.
So here are the stats for April, not including general walking to the station and around and about:
Kilometres run: 24km
Kilometres walked: 20km
Other workouts: 3
Coming soon: a weekend in Snowdonia and a trip to Ben Nevis – feel like I need to up those kilometres!!
