Run made harder by 2 protective swans!

R5w1 was a very hot run so I made it as late as I could and left around 7.45pm on my usual route along the canel path where I met two swans who were being proctective of their babies, determined not to let them interfere with my run I carried on towards them which resulted with them squaring up to me and a peck on my elbow but I completed my run!! Feeling hugely pleased with myself 😀

I came across two swans on a canal towpath - and decided that I would change my turnaround point before I got to them :)

I had only just started out and was on my first walk after my first 5 minute run so I really didn't want to have my turnaround then but they are quite big birds so can understand why you would of especially if they are protecting their young!! Going out on a run tonight so hoping I won't run into them again 😁
