Falling pine cones are hazardous 🌲

Falling pine cones are hazardous 🌲

Well, as the photo suggests I have completed WK4 but it wasn't without incidents!!

Firstly, I had a very lovely but muddy hug from a dog 🐶 in the middle of my first cool down walk and almost missed Mr Smooth telling me it was time to run again!! My clean running gear is now wet, muddy and covered in doggy prints 🐾🐾 but I managed to carry on with my running.

Secondly, falling pine cones!! I personally think the carnivorous squirrels that I met last week have become sadists!! I swear to god they were in the trees as I was running, waiting for me to get to them just so they could bombard me!! Alright, alright, it was only 3 pine cones but come on squirrels, you've had your fun 🤣🤣

So all in all an eventful end to WK4 but an end none the less. Week 5 I hope you're ready because I'm coming for you!!!

Carnivorous shotputting squirrels. Who knew? And Mr Smooth even in his Olympian splendour has no hints for dealing with those...

Ha ha! Funnily enough, I had a squirrel scare this morning. One jumped right out in front of me, and as I hadn't seen its approach, i let out an involuntary yelp. Then felt silly, as it was just a squirrel after all. 🐿 But little idiot took me by surprise.

Must be the week for squirrels. I'm slightly worried about what I'm going to face next week as I run through a country park so deer 🦌 could be on the cards!!

Sounds like you're going to take week 5 by the scruff of it's neck and give it a good shake, well done you're doing great carnivorous squirrels aside.
