So W8 R3 made for an interesting one this morning! Having just moved house, I'm trying to discover new jalking routes and decided to try out a route along the canal today. What I didn't bank on (no pun intended) was how narrow & muddy it would be in parts! Unfortunately 10 minutes in a cyclist came hurtling towards me on a very narrow section, so I had to stop & basically stand in a bush so he could get past. Never mind I thought, I'll carry on, which I did until I hit a large patch of mud. So i then skidded towards the edge of the canal where a Swan had his beady eyes on me 😳so again I had to stop to regain my balance & gingerly walk round the mud to safer ground. I tried to up my pace for the remainder, in an attempt to balance out the stops. This seems to have worked according to robot map my run lady who said my pace was the same as my previous 2 runs, a sluggish but steady 7.52 per km. (unless the slide in the mud added some speed 😂)
Im not sure what I do now? I think the two stops between them totalled 60-90 seconds. Should I class it as completed and go onto w9 or redo the run? What would you do?
