Week 8 Run 2!! Most enjoyable run so far!

Week 8 Run 2!! Most enjoyable run so far!

Hi! Really enjoyed my run this morning! I had a change of route again! I’m so lucky living close to such a beautiful place! I had all sorts of terrain! Muddy forest paths, mud flats where I had to jump over big puddles, sand dunes and a lovely sandy beach! I spotted an egret too for the first time!

Some poor lady got a fright in the car park as she thought I was the attendant in my hi viz jacket!!!

Enjoying this programme so much! Can’t believe it’s my final week next week! But I’ll keep running now!!

Ahh, I am in Scotland too. Snowy, sunny but chilly wind here today so will need a few layers for my run this afternoon. ❄️🌬

I’m originally from Northern Ireland! Just been here 3 years and absolutely love it! I used to walk this route now I’m running it ha ha!

Luckily snow not got down this far! We do get a lot of sun in this part of Scotland but very chilly winds!

Enjoy your run later! Wrap up warm!! 😀 x

Go steady.... beach runs, do put a strain on our calf muscles.. so take it gently!

Yes! Today was a completely different thing altogether ! (I usually run on pavements or gravel paths! ) I was jumping over large puddles on the mud flats and squelching around on muddy paths making sure I didn’t slip!!

That is such a fab view, that would certainly get some good running out of me...

Good luck for your upcoming graduation week
