Month total 1818 = 30 hrs + 18 min

65 minutes ahead of schedule now. This month was specially memorable for the Running Bath hill-training week.

It was also the month I said goodbye to the Green Jewels. The minimalist running shoes I've been wearing most often of all my shoes since I bought them in februari. They were almost
worn through the soles and I thought that after they'd carried me up and down the hills of Bath for a week that this was a good place to end their running career. I saved the green elastic laces.

Met Carin and Dusty coming back from a short walk as I was starting out on my run so took Dusty with me for the first Harry's Bar circuit then went on to the other side of the Eem and back via the road to Bunschoten.

Grey Start

81 min
Start 7.15
Got out to the Soesterduin in a colourless damp morning. I can feel the vague beginnings of a sore throat so wanted to get some running time in before a possible real cold hits me and knocks back my end of month total. I'm now necking hot blackcurrant and honey drinks and hoping the symptoms don't develop any further, specially as I've just realised that the Eindhoven Marathon is Next Weekend...

Week total 472

Lots of lovely hilly running in Bath (and getting lost a fair bit) meant I easily got the time in this week.

Singelloop Utrecht

75 min
Start 12.00
Ran the 10k in just under the hour. Not as fast as in Hilversum in April but the course was pretty packed and I'm never very good at pushing past people so just tend to stick to the pace of those immediately round me. Still, a good steady run and I felt fine.

Deer and Apples

77 min
Start 6.15
First to Wydcombe then uphill towards the sun in the east. Saw deer and ate a perfect Golden Delicious apple from a heavily laden tree.

When running through a shopping centre on the way home found a public loo just at the moment when I thought I could use one...

River Run

70 min
Start 7.00
Along the towpath and back.

Running Bath

Serious Hill Running...
Photos and so on once I get home, but just logging in now while I wait for us to be able to check in for the flight home tomorrow. Have run every morning except for yesterday when I went in the early evening. LOTS of steep hills in the town. Also bought some compression socks in a shop (which I stole the title of this blog entry from). They feel great and got me through a long day yesterday including more than 2 hours of Austenesque dancing, followed by a long (I got lost) hilly run + the usual touristy meanderings about the streets of Bath in search of Sally Lunn buns and the famous Bizarre Bath tour in the evening.
