Yesterday I went to watch my daughters boyfriend running in the local Mud Runner Race. He had to do roughly 7 miles over parts of the Eastnor Land Rover test drive circuit. I only watched near the end but it looked like it was pretty tough to do but a lot of fun if you were fit enough. The final section involved running down a pretty steep hill and through a very muddy pool where there were lots of families with their kids all shouting at the competitors to belly flop into the mud pool, some even took on the challenge splashing muddy water everywhere. The kids, and me of coarse loved it and cheered everytime someone dived in . This was followed by a fairly long run down a stream which was waist deep in places and looked very cold but the runners seemed to be loving it as it washed the mud off and cooled them down at the same time, crazy lot that they were.
If your feeling a bit chilly today then watch my short video, it will make you feel thankful your at home and in the warm.
I've also been out this morning and did the River Severn Walk as it was Monday again, its become a regular thing now weather permitting. I had a treat today, I saw a kingfisher flying upstream keeping very low and moving way to fast through the swans for me to get my camera out so sorry Healthunlockeders you'll just have to settle for a short video of a pair of swans that paddled slowly past me, going at my kind of pace. plus.google.com/10152331535... . I couldn't do the mud runner or get close to the king fisher but I'm happy plodding along at my own pace and thankful I can still do that.
It pays to forget the things you are not able to do and stay focused on what you can do don't it Healthunlockeders.
