I had a great run. Not as long as I thought it was (Google Earth is my friend), but it was good. I haven't run in a few weeks, but I didn't feel it (although I might well tomorrow....). The sun was shining and the birds were probably singing, although I was listening to my walkman so I can't vouch for that. Heard a few crows cawing (is that what crows do?) but that's not quite the same, really.
I noticed that the oil seed rape has started to flower in the field up the road. Wouldn't usually be remarkable, but it also flowered in November. I realise there are two varieties and that one does flower in the autumn (well I didn't realise until I just looked it up just then) but I've only ever seen it in flower in the spring before so I think it was connected to the crazy weather patterns that also had farmers picking raspberries in November.
I've only ever run one 10k race before. My time (don't snigger) was 1hr 17 m 59s. (When I say I'm not very good at running I really do mean it.) I don't honestly know if I'll beat it next week. But I'll try my best.
I would like to point out that I don't normally talk about the weather this much. I'll stop soon, promise.
