Is it just me or does everyone's body during the the first k or mile seem to say " your going to try and do how many of these ?" It feels impossible to run but then as you settle into it, a rhythm develops and you start ticking off or counting down K's or Miles . For me this is made easier with something to look at, listen to or distract you from actually running. I like to watch the trail, the clouds, the trees. This holiday it's been the water ( something I don't get at home and I've loved it). Today's water was the Caledonian canal and banked by my one of my favourite trees the Rowan I was easily distracted. I will miss the water.
