Why walk down Memory Lane when you can run it?
Yesterday was my 27th birthday. I chose to run 9 miles of significant life locations up until I was about eighteen; schools, places of work, homes etc. I didn’t manage to cover everything but it was a great feeling remembering where things are that I’ve not seen for years.
For example this is the Birdcage up by my first nursery in Clifton.
One of my presents was a yoga mat. I intend to try to build yoga back into my daily routine. For years it was a staple. Then I found running and forgot about it but stretching is equally important to avoid tight muscles. I’m looking forward to getting used to it again!
It’s safe to say after 9 chilly miles I deserved this Gluten Free chocolate and peanut butter cake made by my friend Brendan and burgers and a few drinks with good family and friends. So yummy and we all know chocolate is good for recovery. Peanut butter is a good source of protein which each spoon containing about 8 grams of the stuff.
Lovely day all round!
