I am persisting with the running despite the injury. I am keen to re measure all the course I usually run to see how accurate my guesses have been on the distance now I have my garmin Forerunner 205 device.

On this course I wasn’t far out it being 7.1 miles according to the watch compared to 7.2 on Mapmyrun and my original guess of 7.5 miles.

Rver Lark from Fornham All Saints to Culford ,Fornham St Martin and Bury St Edmunds Town Centre

This run really begins for me when I pick up the footpath sign along the Mildenhall Road near the old malting’s building. This takes you down to the River lark and a chance of a river bank run.

This is also the point where funding and seemingly will power ran out for the expensive project to develop the lark for larger boats to ferry large cargoes by river navigation. It succeeded from Mildenhall up to this point in Bury St Edmunds but funding and the coming of the railway ended this ambitious project.

When you reach the banks of the river following the course of the river takes you through the Suffolk Golf and Country Club.

You always have to keep one eye on a potential golf ball hitting you but running between the large weeping willow this is a lovely spot. However the peace and tranquility of the river bank only really comes after crossing over the road at Fornham All Saints and resuming the River Bank run. Here you lose the golfers in there Armani sweaters approved by Tiger Woods and the focus is on the river bank. One explanation for the name Golf is that it is really an abbreviation for Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden. Not sure if I believe that.

I soon disturbed a heron which flew up from the river and rested in a tree. Thoughts of Tarka the Otter ,Wind in the Willows and Tales from the Riverbank spring to mind. There are some great videos on You tube of Hammy the Hamster , Roderick the rat narrated by Johnny Morris a wonderful black and white series.

Onwards the river bank run takes you through to Culford and Hengrave. I chose to run into Culford before returning to Bury along the busy B1106 Thetford Road into Fornham St Martin and to extend the run I ran into Bury Town Centre before returning home .

Before setting out on this run I measured the course using MapMyRun.com. I was looking to run a 10 mile course and this one is slightly more so was ideal.

It was quite warm and I missed the Wimbledon final which apparently was a classic match to do this run. Anyway I had more interest in the Tour De France which this year started in London and is one of the great events of the year.

Hyde Wood was slightly cooler to run around the perimeter with a little shade offer by the trees. My time of 8.20 miles seemed about right and I was tired but pleased with the effort and run.

Left it late for a run today. I am still using my old Asics and they are up to 487 miles. I shall replace them this week as to continue using them now the support isn’t as good is to risk injury.

After last nights race this was a more sedate run at a slow comfortable pace around the villages of Fornham St Martin, St Genevieve and All Saints. I am now thinking of my next race as currently I have nothing booked.

Possible races I might do include:

Stowmarket Striders Friday 5 on the 22nd of June or the

Framlingham Midsummer Madness Half Marathon on the 23rd of June

Newmarket 10k on the 1st of July

Sudbury Joggers 5 on the 4th of July

Anyone planning to do 1 of these events ?? Obviously potential hot weather plays a part in any decision.

Fairly flew along today as if I was racing and I didn’t put the breaks on. I think after recent training and races where I have felt really slow and sluggish, to suddenly feel a bit like I have a second gear was wonderful.
