As the family didn't join me until run 2, I had to stay on week 1 for an extra run. However if today's run is anything to go by I will be on week 1 for the foreseeable future. Husband didn't join us as he is unwell, so it was just the child, the dog and myself running in circles around the cemetery today. And wouldn't it be that the same couple as last time were walking their dogs and looking at up as though we were mad.
My dog had a great time, running around all over the place chasing rabbits and making friends with other dogs. But I suspect he went to the loo at one point that I didn't see so I haven't cleared it up - that will worry me for weeks, I would retrace the route to check but he doesn't follow our route and likes to empty his bowels under bushes or other hard to get to places, I can often be seen clambering, disheveled and bleeding, out of a holly bush clutching a bag with dog waste in it (I think he does it on purpose, in my head I can hear him saying - in Eddie Izzard's voice - "now find that one woman, mwa ha ha.").
The child and I did not enjoy ourselves quite so much, both of us were pooped before we started, the child was flagging at the warm up walk stage and he only got worse as the run walk bits went on and kept stopping. I couldn't just leave him and carry on, even though it is a fairly small area we are running in and he is 10, he would insist on me staying with him so I had to slow down when ever he did, which was often. I could cope with it during the walk bit, I just walked in circles around him, but I couldn't in the run bits, so I would run on and then walk back to him in the walk bit, all the turning around knackered me, so I am afraid I only got to the end of the 7th run and I gave up and joined my son who had sat on a bench by this time, as I ran backwards and forwards in front of him. We walked home slightly deflated. Maybe we are all coming down with my husbands bug. And I still don't know what kind of egg I found last time, it's a choice between a blackbirds and a thrush,
