I have just started to increase my distance once a week, did 7k last weds, so was aiming for that again this week. Have a lovely route which starts off roads and pavements and as a 'reward' bridle paths and field tracks for the last 2k. Now it has been very muddy in places and today was no different, however, unfortunately I slipped and face planted the mud! See pic! Luckily it was all very soft, but sadly I will probably have to change my route, but safety comes first! Surprised at how fast I went down! Got to my 7k though, and please excuse the crystal tips look (lifelong), I had a facial yesterday too, wasn't planning on another one just yet! Just had to take a pic and share!
Happy (and safe) running!
