Sett Valley trail

What a beautiful run that was. Early for me at this time of year but it was the only time I could fit it in. Accompanied by woodpecker pecking very close by and geese honking on the water. Very few people out, an " old" lady on an even older bike who passed me on the flat but I passed her on the hilly bit when she was pushing her trusty steed! I was sending photos to my youngest brother (62) as I was going... He related he'd been practicing standing on one leg with his eyes closed.... During Mass! Attaching photos which don't do it justice. It's so different to Suffolk. I love that running takes to different places on my visiting children.

It looked a lovely morning for a run at least dry. Don’t know how u can send photos running bad enough changing podcast walking. I should have went out too lovely morning here but don’t know what was wrong with me, not like me, maybe just needed a rest, usually out early morning before work. Off day I think. Liked to have seen your brother standing on one leg in Mass!! 😊 enjoy your time with your family. 🙂

Thanks D, it was tempting to stay under bed clothes as we are in a very cold campervan, only 2' when I was dressing. Had to take leggings and top under duvet and get dressed there, but knew I'd regret it if I didn't go.

That doesn’t sound like fun. Yes felt a bit like that wished I went when I saw the blue sky . Tomorrow’s another day.

Absolutely, always another day and another possibility.. I'm so lucky to be fit and retired.

Ah that looks lovely. It is nice to run somewhere different, well done. Standing on one leg is great for balance! Unless you fall over of course 🤣. Hopefully not in the middle of mass.

That looks a lovely place to run. It was a cold start this morning so well done for sticking it and getting out!

It was cold, but so bright that that made it more doable.

I thought it was lovely to feel so much warmth in the sun when it did appear..... spring sunshine!

Your younger brother is obviously a big kid at heart. 😆

Oh yes, very definitely, being a Batchelor he had no reason to grow up!

Those photos are just lovely, thanks Mormor1 . Please tell me your younger brother isn't a priest?!

How lovely 😊

Beautiful, indeed! What a lovely spot. Did the priest kept the sermon to a few seconds (unlikely). Even without injury, that closed-eyes one-leg balance would have me causing such a disturbance in church. Wobble, topple, crash.

Lovely! I heard a woodpecker on my run this morning! So much birdsong too. Must be spring!

It's in the air... March is definitely Spring 😅

I often go walk along the Sett Valley trail, haven’t run it yet as it is a short drive away from where I live and I generally run from home. Practicing standing on one leg definitely good for you- especially as you get older for balance. I usually practice while cleaning my teeth. Less of an audience if I fall over😂😂
