Run, Walk, Walk

Thursday’s run was a pretty uneventful run though Parkfields and back – a nice steady 4 miles.

Friday, I was up early to take some of the grandchildren to school. Glancing at my watch, I noticed a text standing me down from school run duties.

I made a few calculations and after consulting the charts decided to catch a lift to Wolverhampton with my other half and take a walk from there.

 Knowing that I would be passing Go Outdoors in Wolverhampton, I ordered a new pair of walking trousers which, I was assured, would be ready for collection.

The walk went well and when I got to Bilston Road, left the canal behind and made my way to Go Outdoors to pick up my trousers.

Guess what? They couldn’t find them !

Empty handed, I got back on the canal and made my way to Tipton, passing through the 329m long Coseley Tunnel, clocking up nearly 10 miles.

I caught the train into Birmingham and then the bus back home.

Come the evening and I agreed to meet my other half for a drink in the (you guessed it) Griffin. I left myself little time so had to walk briskly to get there before Sue. I managed the 6.3 miles in jus under an hour and a half (13:17 pace). 
On arrival, I phoned Sue who informed me that she was still about half an hour away – I needn’t have rushed.
