Gentle jog ... honest!

First of all, I have to say that I've recovered quite nicely from the tough 4-hour off-road bike ride yesterday. I was worried about 'doing the stairs' ... and anyone whose done a marathon knows about the dreaded stairs the day after! However, I'm very pleased to say that I was ok ... surprisingly!

Now ... onto today exercise. I met Susie, a friend who is leaving this week for a 5-week ski 'working holiday' for a gentle jog. And guess what, a gentle jog it was!! We ran around Stanmer Park in the dark and we both agreed that we were glad we had each other as it would have been quite nerve racking to have done it on our own!

Felt like a novel concept to run about 5k nattering away ... that's what I've been missing all this time! So, note to self ... if planning to do a gentle jog, find someone to go out with for a natter, and then that will definitely keep the pace down so you can natter!


  1. I do miss a training budy the other days in the week, but you cant chat in the pool :)

  2. Always a good plan on your weekend long runs to have a natter to keep the pace right.
