tense and words
Any error with the following sentences?
This morning, I decided to have a run, when I looked at the sunshine through the window of my bedroom. Why not? I ran through the wood and ran in the park.
There should not be a comma after run, but the sentence still needs a bit of tweaking. I would change "when I looked at" to "after I saw". Your decision to go for a run was a result of seeing the sunshine. Using after shows that cause & effect. When gives less of a connection between the two. They just happened at the same time.
In the US, we refer to the forest as the woods (plural).
