The 2014-15 Holiday Running Streak continued yesterday with a trip to the Swindon Rail Station to pick up some train tickets. It was a gorgeous afternoon (if a bit nippy) and the Radnor Street Cemetery beckoned. The ticket pick-up done, the return voyage saw the steep side of the cemetery and then a sprint to catch up to Jackie as she came up Eastcott Hill from work; the scent of pork roast and chicken and pheasant broth I had been cooking all day greeted us at home…really perfect winter stuff.
Today, the run was before sunrise but still kind of late for last year’s morning jogs. The rail trail is kind of spooky that time of day and I ditched it for Wichelstowe and a loop by Nationwide and up Marlborough Road. Glad to get the daily 3 miles out of the way early, this may be the way to go for the rest of the hols.
