Out with the dog again today and thought I'd try a new route using bridleways instead of the pavement pounding. It's great to run in the daytime as I usually have to run at night...but it's half term! I planned my route and set off....
Mud! Lots of it...very slippery, gluey mud which was joyous for dog but not so good for staying on your feet. Slipped and slid and eventually, inevitably, landed on my bum in a large quagmire. Whilst clambering out of mud slid into large nettle patch. Undaunted, kept going, lost dog, found dog, got lost myself and had to double back, now wishing I had brought my phone to call for emergency airlift from the woods of deepest Berkshire.... Then rain! And a good thing too, as getting rather hot.....The route I had planned was supposed to be 7k but ended up over 10! Eventually staggered out back into civilisation looking exceedingly glam - the 'assault course' look, I think! I had fun! Who'd have thought it a few months ago 🤗✌️
