I resisted the urge to get the 45 minute run out of the way early this fine Sunday, but as the mist cleared away at around 11:30 I headed out onto Greenham Common for a loop of the common which is around 6 miles. It was almost Spring-like, the sun was shining, the sky was blue but the wind out of the East still had a winters chill in it.
Run done, lunch with the family & off out again for a leisurely bike ride with my son in tow on his Specialized Hardrock MTB over the Common again then down onto the Kennett & Avon Canal towpath for a pleasant amble along the water back into Newbury. No times, no heart rates to worry about just leisure but with a purpose still, bike handling skills at low speed in mud & mixed surfaces, tight turns onto bridges all good training still especially for a 12 year old.
Day of rest tomorrow, looking forward to that.
