If running fast works for you Saint then fantastic, go for it! Nobody is telling you to go slow, just that some of us enjoy it :)
Run Wild by Boff Whalley is a great book about running and appreciating the scenery, really lovely writing.

Richard Askwith’s follow up to Feet in the clouds has a similar theme too

Tomorrow is the big Scottish Fetch mile. With added parkrun

I think I’ll adopt the mimble approach to the parkrun so I can give my full attention to the mile

Bimbling is a bicycle activity, surely?

Anything slow Greg me thinks walk, jog, amble, steady away on bicycle

My problem with the books was both were kind of preaching to the converted ;)

No-one should ever 'preach' to anyone about running. Nor indeed about anything else (eg what to eat, what to drink, what to wear).

I've friends who like nothing more than to run against the clock. They get both satisfaction and achievement by hitting a targeted pace. That's absolutely brilliant and all power to them. Genuinely.

Just not for me any more. I much prefer 'ambling along'.

Got something to say?
