And my goodness, it felt good! ๐Ÿ˜Ž First sun around here for what feels like ages, so sharp out the door this morning in case weathermonger changed the plan. Risked the field path, and it wasnโ€™t too bad in spite of yesterdayโ€™s storms - some slimy mud and a few branches on the ground, but the reward is views across the hilly bits and trees now in good colour as I went round the common at the far end. Stuck in an extra loop, and 9k ticked off the list. ๐Ÿ˜„ Happy running to you all (and happy sprinting to the gazelles - you know who you are!)

Yes and Iโ€™m wary as the worst section is on a hill, where all of us skirting the cropland have created a smooth path on clay. Add rain, and you get a slithery surface that an otter would love! Going up isnโ€™t too bad, but I walk down with my fingers crossed as well.
