A Long Run with the Tall Ships

This week’s running was focused around getting back to normal after illness and making sure that there were no reactions to increasing the intensity. The highlights were a fartlek session (speed play in Swedish for the non-running readers) based around Greenwich’s Books About Town Benches, and a long run following the Thames from Woolwich to Greenwich watching the Tall Ships regatta, I will post more on this later in the week.

It wasn’t the easiest of runs as I have never seen the Thames Path so crowded particularly as the path narrowed closer to Greenwich but with around 50 sailing ships on show the occasional walking pace didn’t seem to matter too much
