Run Half a Mile Out To Sea
No, I’m not taking up Lloyd Scott’s training methods - these are a little too extreme for me!
I’d intended to get up early, and get 50 bike miles under my belt before the rest of the family were up & at ‘em. But a combination of a late night, and the fact that it was blowing a gale here put that on ice.
So then I thought I’d go in the afternoon, once I’d finished the five minute DIY task that needed doing. Five hours later, the afternoon was gone, and there was no real time to get out for a decent length ride.
But a run doesn’t take too long. So I set off for Tynemouth, with the intention of taking it easy - a “just clock up the miles, and don’t look at your watch” kind of run. When I got to the harbour & found that the pier was open, I couldn’t resist going the extra half mile out to sea. The end of the pier is one of those special places, and although quite a few people do make the effort to walk it, there’s always enough space and wind to make if feel like you’re all alone.
To show you what I mean, I took my camera along, and filmed a short panorama clip for you. The sound quality’s pretty poor, but what can I say - it was windy!:
