I've just been for a quick little run in the sun to try out some new trail shoes. I have a bad back at the moment and I'm off to the chiropractor today, so I thought that if the shoes caused problems, I could get the problems fixed today. So only a short planned run, up the trail and back. Garmin was unhelpful - I turned round at the 1.5k mark and trotted back to my start point, to find the G stating 2.94km. What??? So what do you do? You turn round, of course, and run back a few yards, then turn back and run back again to the gate. Job done. But there was a dog walker.
"Now, then", he said. "It's either this way, or it's that way. D'you not know?"
"Ah," I puffed, gesturing at my watch, "It's all about the numbers."
"A slave!" he cried. "A slave to the numbers! Break free, lass!"
He made me giggle all the way home.
