I have found some great places to run, including a lovely bouncy section of towpath at Stoke Bruerne that was recently resurfaced and makes you feel a bit like Zebedee!
I fell off the wagon over Easter!
Too many tempting things around, but am back to running regular 5ks and have achieved a personal goal in running constantly without stopping for three miles.
I’m also now walking/running 20,000 steps a day at times thanks to the encouragement of my fitbit!
I’ve booked myself in for a 10k run for June (I had a glass of wine and felt brave so signed up)
So, its time to start running slightly further along the towpath (and back).
