Another early one

Back to work for me today after a three day weekend, where I accomplished nothing that I wanted to apart from Wimpole Estate parkrun, so a 5 o’clock alarm call and a six mile run was the order of the day. Pavements were still snow covered and very crunchy with the frost and it was pretty damn cold so nothing new there then, come on spring, get your act together!

I’ve run out of my own sheep pictures so sheep of the day features two stolen pictures today, the first is from the Campaign for Wool page on facebook and features a wedding dress made out of a fleece from her own flock, you can read the article here and the second one is a pictures of some sheeps sheltering from the weather from fellow Ryeland breeder Zoe Unwin.

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!

    I am totally in awe of you running at 5am in these conditions, do you wear spikes or trail shoes?
