A Rest Day.
Took today off as a rest day and I’ve enjoyed it.
I ran twice yesterday doing a 6 miler and a 5 miler. Both runs were pretty great. It’s amazing just being out in the sun and jogging around the place.
I have a tendency to complain about my hometown when it’s raining and miserable but the last few days have made me realise that I live in a good place. It’s amazing running by the sea and the harbour.
Takes me back to earlier in the year when I was running in the dark around town and only had the light of the lamp posts to guide me. I’d stare out at the sea and it’d be indistinguishable from everything else. I’d feel insane running on my own in the dark.
But as the days rolled on the black sky gave way to a dark blue.
The dark blue then gave way to endless shades of blue.
By spring I could easily run around without worry of bumping into anything in the night. It’s a great thing observing the days lengthening from winter until spring, but now we’re on the opposite side of it all.
The days are shortening again.
And I guess the only thing we can do is get out and enjoy it all whilst the summer is with us!
