Today I did 30 easy but fun minutes on ever changing surfaces. Just look at my prints, if this doesn’t warm up legs and feet I don’t know what does:
From small pebbles to larger rocks:
From rocks to heaven:
Just look at it and imagine running there:
And then my second favorite surface:
What are you running on these days?
Just LOVE Ireland around this time of the year. Greeted at the beach with lovely colours:
Tried running through the Sahara and up the stairs of hell:
Passing by Dalkey Island:
Boats part 1:
… and part 2:
Funny enough, Bullock Harbour is exactly 5 k out and was my goal for today’s run. It’s a nice torture to have to run all the way up the hill back to get back to my beach.
I treated my legs to a nice bath in the sea afterwards. Just up to the knees and until they were near frozen. Lovely!
Today the air was super fresh. Even fresher than usual. Just saying …
Spotted the Splash:
Summer is here. Can’t deny that and Ireland is as beautiful as ever.
Low tide? Oh yeah!
The nasty wind is gone and I got to enjoy a quick and easy one. So far so good. Tide will get even better during the week and I am looking forward to get some decent morning runs in.
It looks so pleasant and peachy doesn’t it?
Hahaha. That’s what I thought today … twice.
In the morning around 7ish I didn’t even make it to the beach, vowing to go back at low tide and with my winter gear. The wind was so shocking cold. Fair enough …
After lunch it looked beautiful and temps were up. Glorious sunshine and blooming flowers. I was wearing my winter gear … and also two wraps I had just eaten for lunch … big mistake. Don’t judge me, I am a morning runner and usually eat afterwards.
When I got to the beach it was wild waves all over the place.
I made it for 12 minutes … as soon as I turned back the combination of pebbles, wind and wraps made it into a ‘lesson learned’ rather than a 40 minute easy run.
High tide … forcing me to hang out in the park.
I was not alone:
I spent one hour today and me and my new road shoes seem to be getting along better now. Now I am curious …
How long does it usually take you to break in your shoes? I am usually good after a few runs … maybe it is because of the thicker sole?
Well 45 minutes is better than nothing … I know that song …
Enjoy your day.
