Lighter Evenings- A Runner’s Dream! 

At last the evenings are lighter for longer, meaning a quick 5.15pm 4km is doable before the darkness hits.  My favourite time to run is in the morning but unfortunately there's still time to go before it's light at 5.30am.  Excited 😊

No run today – body aches…. Back to bed! That’s ok right???

I have been successfully waking up at 5.30am for a run however last night I went swimming, did non stop breaststroke lengths for 30 minutes.
