I’d planned to visit Swindon. I’d checked the route, I’d researched the course, I’d even planned a way to extend the parkrun into a long run like last week. But I just couldn’t drag myself out of bed.
So instead I stalked plustenner, and went to Banstead Woods. I do like Banstead Woods parkrun. It isn’t flat, but the uphill is short and sharp, and you are rewarded with a fantastic sweeping downhill that you can really relax into.
As I’d had my first ever sports massage the day before (from a bona fide ‘athoner no less), I was under orders to make my Saturday run an easy one. So I ran round with plustenner at a suitably comfortable pace, enjoying the day and the company.
