My usual 4.3 mile route up to Maxwell Park and back. I got up at around 6:30 and noticed the thick fog outside. Perfect I thought. 🙂
I’ve been taking paracetamol and decongestant to try and stave off the onset of anything nasty. And I’ve also realised that I’m not drinking as much water at work… so I’m going to try and reinstate that good little habit.
The run was pleasant, if a little chilly. 0’C, foggy. It was at an easy comfortable pace, but I still managed an average 8:07 min miles. Not bad.
Old dog is an old golden lab who gets taken out by his owner along with another younger dog. The younger dog is on a lead and was excited when I ran past. Old dog just walks along about 20 metres behind its owner, dragging his heels and drinking from puddles.

My ‘illness’ shall we call it?, is ‘above the neck’ so I’m hoping running will be good for it (as long as I take it easy!!)
