I love starting my run under the night sky with full stars. A full moon is a fabulous bonus, headlamp not needed. When I ended my run, dawn was just about to start it’s magic:
Today is the first day of my new increased duration and my easy run was 50 minutes. Tomorrow will be 100 minutes. A nice and round number. I just have to keep it very slow and try to get some nice running on grass thrown in. If all goes to plan I should be able to be at an easy run of 1 hour three times per week (plus 2 x 2 hour mediums and 1 x 3 hour long run) by the end of the year or at least in January 2017. If I survive that during the Irish winter and still love it, I can start planning next year.
