Tonight I visited Sudbury for a short run around the town centre and the common land meadows. I parked in the free car park in the centre of the town which gives you 3 hours free parking which is great for visitors and local business.

I wore my new shoes that arrived in the post on Monday with a free t shirt. Again excellent service from Do Running and as good as Joe Jogger but with a free t shirt! The shoes I am trying are Reebok Premier Ultra III’s at £29.99 knocked down from £59.99 so a bit of a gamble as to whether they will last and provide support but at this price worth a go.

I headed through town and past the home of Sudbury’s most famous son Thomas Gainsborough. There is a museum to visit and a statue in the town centre.

I headed out to the common land land meadows which run besides the River Stour and the old mill house.

From here you have bit of a runners paradise with a great route along the old railway line to Long Melford if you wish. However I chose today a run around the common lands and well and truly inducted my shoes there being plenty of grazing cows.

There were a number of boys fishing but the type of fishing where you hope for a quantity of small roach and perch for the fun, 1-2 dog walkers and plenty of cows. Cows have more curiosity than cats its their expression which is a give a way. I have been followed more than once when on a run as they try and keep pace with you in expectation of something.

Once again much to see and photo around Sudbury and I will add pictures to my flickr site in time.

Left it a bit late in the day for a run but considering last nights race didn’t start to 7.45pm I think it is fair enough. I ran out along Westley Road and the Newmarket Road under the A14 and up past the Crematorium and out to Risby.

Left the camera behind but wished I had brought it as the hedgerows are absolutely beautiful. However feeling a little tired I enjoyed the run more than I thought I would.

I have ordered some new running shoes but this time from Do Running
instead of Joe Jogger mainly because i fancied a change from the Asics Gel GT 2110 I have worn for the last 1000 miles. The prices on Do Running compare well with Joe Jogger and they do throw in a free t shirt so worth a try I think . We will see how the delivery takes. I am going for a pair of Reebok Prem Ultra III’s which seem a bit on the bargain price size and time will tell if this is a false economy.
