Canicross Sunday

Back to a beginners' trot out with my canicross group. We were back at the place we were the other month where I fell over at least twice, and guess what?

I only fell over once this time (got tripped by another runner's dog). Unfortunately, I also got smacked in the face by a bit of holly bush that hit me right across my mouth.

I'm totally fine, if a little stiff, and I'm particularly glad the holly didn't leave scratches because explaining those would have been weird.

  • Glad you are out there again... even if the holly is out to get you!

    Try to stay upright next time ? :) xxx

  • Will do!

  • :)

  • You're really not doing too well with these are you! ;)

    Stay safe and maybe try not to injure yourself again?!

  • Going shopping today. Nothing can go wrong.

    Or can it???

  • Ooops.. mybe you shouldn't have said that eek :)

  • Well some say that you are not a real runner until you have gone arse over face and I am guessing that is doubly true of canicross.

  • If that's what it takes, I'm a runner several times over ☺

  • Oh dear ! Ha ha ! Ive been smacked lots of times by overgrown hedges , especially in the dark ! Its a bit of a shock isn't it as you cant see them , well I cant , but my eyesight isn't the best :-)

    Canicross sounds lots of fun, I just cant imagine doing it with my 2 pugs as ones a dawdler and ones off like the clappers , I normally end up in the middle looking like Stretch Armstrong :-) xxx

  • To be honest they're not really built for it with their adorable squished up faces, though it sounds like one of yours would be game to give it a go ☺

  • I got yanked upwards by a bit of bramble that got tangled in my hair...

  • Owwie

  • Oh dear, holly - sounds painful :(

  • I did shout, but it was more the shock of it, like a spider a running across the floor.
