Today I was going to be busy with our schools cross country today so decided to get out early again for my hill session.
I left just after 6.30am and wore my head torch as I was heading to Brodie Park and it is pretty dark running round the park.
I’ve not run this route since March I think so it was good to be back. The park is about half a mile away from our house. I then have a lap which is just over 1mile which I do 4 times before running home.
It is a figure of 8 shape, basically 2 loops with a gate to go through to separate them. So by alternating clockwise/anticlockwise I can run the 4 loops in different directions like this …
- loop 1: anticlockwise loop 2: clockwise
- loop1: clockwise loop 2:anticlockwise
- loop 1: clockwise loop 2: clockwise
- loop 1: anticlockwise loop 2:anticlockwise
On the second lap I tripped over a fallen tree but fortunately it was on grass so no damage done.
This weekend I’ll be up on the Braes Saturday and Sunday. I’m looking forward to having a run with Dave T on Sunday who is up for the weekend.
