Back to Basics

Empty Winter TreesBearing in mind all the rain we’ve had recently, I’ve been pretty lucky with the running. It was gorgeous this morning, brilliant sunshine and not even that cold.

As well as this one of the winter trees, there’s a couple on Flickr taken from the same point on the Portway, one looking out of town, and one looking back toward the suspension bridge.

After last weekend’s 10K extreme, I stuck to a simple five-and-a-bit K, averaging a nice 7-and-a-half minutes per kilometre, including the slow struggle up Bridge Valley Road.

I went into Coffee #1 in Clifton Village for my now-traditional vanilla latte. But they apologised before I’d even said “hi”, as they were out of vanilla syrup. And they gave me amaretto for free instead, which was lovely of them.

And that was my morning jog.

    Looks amazing, especially the one heading out of town! You were in luck. ^_^

    Mmmm… amaretto… If I could be bothered putting syrups in my coffee myself, that’s what I’d go for.

    “a nice 7-and-a-half seconds per kilometre,” – wow, you must have been a blur. Nice pics, though.
