Running like a hippo...

I dread to think what I must have looked like; I suspect I have a rear view like a Jackson Pollock canvas!

I'm all for mud and rain but wind and cold sound a bit daunting 😬

Good point! I might need to invest in an outer layer and a hat! This shorts and t-shirt combo is only going to get me so far...

Funnily enough, I never see another soul so the shorts are not a problem. So far this week, my only company has been a pair of mallards and a hare (all significantly faster than me!)

Cor, I could run that now. I have a field just like that near me but with about six stiles to cross first πŸ˜ƒ

It's fun int it! Who knew ey πŸ˜ƒ Just go really slowly. You don't want to hurt yourself and spoil your fun!

The mud has definitely slowed me down even further...and I was far from speedy to begin with. Reckon I'll be going backwards by winter πŸ˜‚
