The Changing of the Seasons …

While London temperatures have been unseasonably warm, the beginnings of autumn have become all too clear, the flower beds in Manor Park, full of subtle colour even a couple of weeks ago are looking tired.

On this morning’s run through Charlton, Maryon Park, Gilbert’s Pit and the Thames Path there were a few autumn tints, particularly with the Virginia Creeper, and lots of conkers crunching underfoot around Charlton House.

The changes were clear too in my long mid-week run which for the first time since spring ended in darkness, the first part included a long lap of Beckenham Place Park, perhaps the last of the summer, and the second, the long drag up Anerley Hill to Crystal Palace. I probably over-did it a bit as my legs were very tired on Friday and the planned tempo run didn’t happen; Monday’s intervals went to same way with a slightly concerning calf twinge, which fortunately didn’t deteriorate.

    In Seville you can see the change on the trees as most trees are evergreen. There are a few maple and acorn along the river. I notice it on my evening workouts though, it gets dark before 9pm and I no longer need to wear my shades.
    Have a nice week!
