Sunday morning longish run

“But it’s not Sunday!” I hear you cry. I know but this is the run I would have done yesterday had the weather not been so abysmal – thank heavens for bank holidays!

After a bit of a lie-in I headed for the country roads and to say they were quiet would be something of an understatement. In just over ten miles I reckon I only saw 4 cars and my route crossed the busy A52 twice! What I did see were some swimming pool sized puddles several of which necessitated me taking to the verges ’cause the water was way over ankle deep! And that was as much excitement as my run generated, a couple of dogs barked at me from behind their fences but otherwise things to marvel at evaded me.

Spent the rest of the day mucking out a loose box and pruning some trees. Not sure if @knittingpenguin is still looking for cows and sheeps on her treasure hunt but here’s Hill Farm Marli and Mollie and Ginny Weasley who she can happily borrow if needs be!

Back to work so back to bloody silly early starts tomorrow!


About JovialGnome

Heavily into running 20 years ago with a PB of 1.42.00 in the Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 1985 and 3.48.49 in the Telford Marathon in 1986 - then for some reason I just stopped and have done little or no physical exercise between then and 2 or 3 years ago! I've now moved to Boston in Lincolnshire where I really enjoy looking after my 13 Ryeland ewes and 1 ram and am rejoicing in the distinct lack of hills! I suspect that sub 4 hour marathons are gone forever but hey, I'm having a great time trying!

    Alternatively, you could have swum through the puddles and called it an aquathlon.
