Squeezing in a run has been difficult and my work flow seems to be getting heavier so I was determined to manage a run today.
I managed to schedule 45 minutes from my day and headed out around 1130.
It was armistice day today so I was mindful that there would be large crowds at Westminster and the surrounding area so I headed down the Embankment and turned back at 1k.
It was quite moving to see all the flowers and wreathes on the city monument to world world one.
My chest did feel a little tight so I decided not to push my luck and stopped at 3k. This was ideal as I managed to stretch at my usual spot on Blackfriars bridge, showered and back to my desk in the 45 minutes I had allowed.
It was rather poignant passing the wreathes today and I did think about what was sacrificed to allow me the freedom to do simple things like running along the Thames!
I didn’t take my phone etc so this photo is not my own but it is from the press today and I think it captures the moment.
At least that’s one run done this week. I shall plan to do the same on Friday.
