Trail running tip of the day (for the women)

Trail running tip of the day (for the women)

Ladies, when you stop for a 'comfort break' when running in a pine forest, make sure you check for wood ant nests before dropping your drawers! Those blighters sure do bite!

Apart from this one incident during today's run, I enjoyed another long slow run with my sweetie along on his bike, as my Chief Support Person, ie Sherpa, photographer and navigator! I know several of you said you'd like a CSP too, and I do appreciate how lucky I am to have him! :-) At one point he said "You want me in front of you, alongside you and behind you - all at the same time. It's hard work!" but bless him, he didn't grumble any more than this.

He's kindly said I can share more of his photos:

  • I shall remember your advice if I'm ever 'caught short'. I also have a CSP, my son, he sometimes follows me on his bike and then rides ahead and opens gates for me so I don't have to stop. Every runner should get one. :)

  • Nice to see and hear from Swanscot, you have your DH well trained, bless him, lovely pics too.

    Ps tics are nasty too and not just attracted to dogs and sheep.

  • What great photos - it looks like a lovely run :)

  • Love the photos thank you for sharing. It looks as if you are about to do a swan dive onto the beach. You must be very fit because the trail looks quite hilly in parts. Hubby doing a good job too

  • lovely pics, beautiful place, so perfect for running...well done you, and what a lovely hubby you have..
