Second 10 mile (Jammy Dodger fuelled) run!

Ok, it may not be the ideal food but I went to get an oaty bar from the cupboard to take on my long run and there were none left! I really felt that a small snack midway through my last 10 miler helped, so I reached for an alternative!! Headed out on to the local roads before hitting my usual trail. Wet and muddy in places and I had a bit of a battle attempting one track which I thought might not be so impassable now...WRONG! Fought my way through a fair few nettles before hopping over the fence and running in the field! Up and across the bridge in this picture before descending down and on to the old railway line. Several miles and quite a few puddles later(!) I was back on the local roads for the last few K and finished my 10 miles in 1:43:02. Quicker than the first time I hit my target distance and feeling good! It was a great day for running and the photo is probably one of my favourite parts of the run, especially when I come back under it because i know I am 'on my way home'! Hope others have enjoyed their runs today too!

Thanks JaySeeSkinny, that'll probably be the last 10 mile before the Great South Run, but I do feel that the cooler days have really given my running a boost! πŸ™‚
