Not just me without a dog, but my running buddy from down the road running without either of her two as well! That never happens.
MapmyFitness had me down to do an interval run today, which... we sort of did... kind of?
I jogged down to her house to meet her. I thought I'd started the Garmin, but I hadn't, so I rectified that as soon as I got to hers. We then walked through the farm so she could warm up and then started our run down he track across the fields. It was a gorgeous morning - I'd already walked the dogs before coming home and doing a quick change into running gear, so was only wearing a t shirt, but friend had been cold indoors and had on a long sleeve top and was soon far too warm. in deference to that we ran a bit, walked a bit for a while. This took us to the Open Access land portion of our run, past cows (which friend Does Not Like) and sheep (they seemed to have been freshly shorn so looked very clean and dainty).
We have both always assumed that if we turn right and head up the hill at the end of this portion of run that we'd come out on the chalk track that leads back to the farm. So this morning, we turned right and picked our way up the hill using the sheep tracks - both narrowly avoiding turning our ankles in rabbit holes in the process.
We were wrong.
We were wrong by about the length of 2 great big fields
There was barbed wire involved, so we opted to retrace our steps and actually found a shorter path back.
We then ran all the way back to the farm buildings, before starting our cool down walk.
Grand total 6.5k in 53 minutes, by friend's tracking app (as I forgot to turn the Garmin off when we got back to hers, so walked back to mine - including a stop at the shop! - with it still tracking.
