Some days I just need to run for just the joy of it. This afternoon I headed out with music – something I haven’t done in a while, and decided just to ‘get lost’ on the gazillion paths of Wimbledon Common not worrying about distance, time, cadence or forefoot vs midfoot vs heel striking.
The first 5km were a bit hard because I got dizzy, I think I was dehydrated. I always have water with me though so after that distance everything started to feel better and I had a great 15km run in the woods just listening to great music, enjoying the sunshine and loving running at a pace that feels comfortable and awesome all the way.
The common is hilly but it just adds to the ‘adventure’ of it all.
I loved the surroundings so much I collected the husband and the kids as soon as I got home and we spent the afternoon there just letting the boys be boys and breathing in fresh forest air for a change.
A Saturday that fully charged my emotional as well as vitamin-D batteries 🙂
