Just wrote my post and deleted it by mistake when I went to edit it!!!!😬
Anyway I’ll make it shorter now!!
I signed up to a virtual 25 mile challenge for August and in a moment of madness changed it to 50 miles! With holidays and working I’m finding it a challenge but that’s good I suppose!! I’m nearly there!!
Wanted to do a long run on my day off so decided to do the long coastal route and it worked out well with it being low tide!
Set out about 9 ! Schools back here!! Feels very much like autumn too with a wee nip in the air!
I listened to Running Commentary podcasts which really distract me and I found I was hardly paying any attention to my Garmin which was good !
This route is definitely a trail run!! (Perhaps I should consider trail shoes!!!!?😂) I love all the different sections and terrain! There’s a lovely wooded bit before the salt marshes and beach! Spotted a huge jellyfish fish! Looks more like a cow pat!!!
The beach was hard going with bumpy ridges and if I went off that there was an “adverse camber” in places! It was so deserted apart from one or two dog walkers and odd rambler! I did get a bit startled when another friendly runner suddenly appeared behind me on the wee bridge! He just appeared out of nowhere!!!
I carried on along golf course, happy to pause while shots were taken!!! along cliff top , harbour and back home through the woods!! It started to rain too but I don’t mind that at all! Actually felt not too tired! It’s definitely getting easier dare I say doing these longer runs!!!
Happy running everyone!! 😀🏃♀️
