Ok so it was meant to be 3.5k for my short run this week according to Magic 10, but it was so gorgeous this morning, how could I resist the extra 0.5k? πŸ˜€

Also, totally out of character for me, I ran somewhere different. 😲 I was in a bit of a rush today, and whereas I’d have had time to go to the gym, there are roadworks and diversions en route, and I couldn’t risk going miles out the way. My regular route would have entailed Bristol rush hour traffic (no thank you), so I stayed threw caution to the wind and stayed local.

Well, what a revelation! The common where I often walk my dog! It’s beautiful and funky all at once. All off road, rural landscape, lovely views - but with planes taking off or landing where you can practically see the pilot’s eyebrows! ✈️

My dog was able to run free and play while I trotted around happily on the frosty grass in bright sunshine - and 4k sorted! What a bonus route! πŸ‘ I’ll use it again, although it’s renowned for fog or high winds as it’s very exposed, so I’ll have to pick and choose. But for today, perfect! πŸ˜€πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Happy Thursday everyone! ❀️

Yeah pick and choose away πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘. A mix of routes gives you the best of all worlds, with a mix of terrains and surfaces, changes of level, slopes and hills It’s all good πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ•

Must be something in the air! Found a hidden gem myself this morning :) I know that area a little (OH is a pilot) so I can just imagine how glorious that must have felt today! What a super run β˜ΊοΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘Š

Ahh brilliant Equi! I’ve always discounted running up there because it’s so undulating in places, but I’m tempted to go more often in future! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβœˆοΈπŸ˜€

Sounds perfect! I love finding new routes, and having it close to home, and being super for your dog - what could be better!

Absolutely, TC. It’s the closest running route to my house. It’s 1/2 a mile away but I still drive as there’s no pavement on our road! 😳 It’s really lovely and I’ve promised myself I’ll run there more often. πŸ˜€ My dog adores it! β€οΈπŸ•

Totally fab Deals! πŸ˜€πŸƒβ€β™€οΈβœˆοΈπŸ•β„οΈβ˜€οΈβ€οΈ

Sounds good cheeky 😊. I usually stick to the same route but often think I should try s different place.

Hope you’ve felt the benefit all day 😊

Thanks Beanjo, yes I’m still happy thinking about it now! I’ll definitely run up there again. It’s a no brainer as it’s so close to my house compared to my normal route and parkrun! πŸ˜€πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Wonderful run cheeky 😁 The common sounds like a perfect spot to add to the running routes plus I find it more motivating when there's a choice of routes.

I just finished my second 10k, just! I've done two long runs already this week, possibly stupidly πŸ˜†πŸ˜œπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Strength work tomorrow, parkrun Sat!

Look at you go CH! You’re flying, how wonderful! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

I’ll definitely do the common again. I can incorporate some very challenging hills if I like. Or I can pootle, which I also like! πŸ˜…πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Another good run in the bag CCM! And what a bonus finding somewhere so nice for you and your dog close to where you live :)

Oh yes it’s definitely a major bonus having it so close SSF! I’ve just never considered running there before. πŸ™„πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜€
