Apologies for this being a short little blog post. A short run this evening - exactly two weeks since I last put my Sauconys on for a run. I'm now almost over this 'orrible dose of 'flu. Yuck, I hated it.
Quite an interesting place is Hughenden Manor. I knew about the Disraeli connection but I had no idea about the WW2 importance. It was used as a secret map making place for Bomber Command and the RAF people who worked there (and lived 2+ miles away) were given bicycles. If you were a civilian, well hard luck, Chum. The photo is Hannah with one of said bicycles - still rideable after all those years.
We got home, had tea. Then there was nothing else for it but to get my running shoes, woolly hat and gloves for a little run (a runnette?). We needed a letter posting and so I was off.
Having not run for two weeks I had no idea how I'd feel. To be honest it was a bit weird at first having to consciously think about running, rather than the usual autopilot approach. I ran just for about half a mile and coughed my way around mostly. The air temperature was only around 2 or 3C and this was a reminder of not being completely better.
All in all it felt good to be running a little. Nice feeling a little out of breath and the sensation of a gentle jog / slow run.
Might go further tomorrow but I wish the weather would warm up! I hate the cold almost as much as having flu but things are now looking up!
