Goodness me! I thought after managing 11 miles last weekend, my 10k today would feel comparatively easy! Decided to run my favourite trails, managing to miss the rain. Without the semi frozen ground firming up the mud as it did last week, it was so muddy and slippy underfoot! Staying upright was really quite a challenge in parts but I loved it just the same๐Ÿ™‚. Across fields and up a small hill ๐Ÿ˜ฎ before eventually running down through woodland and on to what used to be the old railway line (now a Bridleway). I ran up to the old station, now part of somebody's beautiful home with the old platforms and engine shed still there as part of the garden! Turning at Platform 1(!) I returned down the track, before leaving the bridleway for smaller meandering trails for a while. Eventually heading back towards home, I ran up and over the old railway cutting, rabbit holes everywhere and a lovely view across the surrounding fields with the bridleway below. The reward of course is always running down the other side with just a couple of kilometres to go! I certainly feel as though I have had a good workout but more than this... how lucky are we, to be runners? ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope everyone else has enjoyed their runs this weekend.๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

That sounds absolutely lovely. It's great when a run turns into a bit of sightseeing as well :)

It was Ali! I do love a muddy run! ๐Ÿ™‚

That sounds way more muddy than my run today. I'm just so used to flat city canals that any mud at all freaks me out! Sounds like you really relished it :)
