Well, I'd planned a run today anyway but my new trail shoes arrived too so I hastily changed my route idea and set off into the wilds.
Firstly.... what a difference. These trail shoes are super comfy but don't have the same support as my road runners. On fields your feet are going in every direction. I'm sure my ankles will feel it tomorrow.
Through sheep fields and muddy paths... some so bad I was more hopping from side to side than going forward. Gates, kissing gates and stiles, a couple of which were in a bad state of repair. I almost hung myself on one when my foot that was over the fence slipped and I landed on the rail 😲 my poor thigh!
It was all fun though and took me back to my childhood running around with my brother as the sun set.
I'm going to do both road and trail but that was a good start. 4.3 miles again and strava says 44 min inc warm up and down. I'll take that!👍😁
