Wanted to do at least 5 or 6 miles this morning. We were heading out to Kortrijk on the train at 9:00 so I had to get up a little bit earlier which was good for me. I got out of the house just before 7:00 and decided to run to the Provincial park and then do a couple loops around the lake there. I had not run there before but looked at the map and was given directions also. Unfortunately I took a wrong turn after running too far on the bike path and ended up going through the cemetery. The odd thing was that it took me a while to realize that I was in a cemetery because it looked very different than any that I had seen before.
Anyway I ended up on a busy road heading toward the countryside which I stayed on until just past 3 miles then I turned around and headed home.
Average pace: 8:14
We spent the day sight seeing in Kortrijk where there had been a big battle over 700 years ago which gave birth to Flemish nationalism. It was also a very nice city to walk around in with old churches, parks, and lots of shops and restaurants.
By the end of the day the top of my right foot was hurting me - I did my run in my old running shoes which may not have been a great idea. I'm going to take tomorrow off from running so I'll be ok for Saturday.
