Ive always wanted to run around Queens Valley reservoir having pram pushed and walked with friends, around it for years so today I bit the bullet and did it.
I had genuinely forgotten how up and down it was , it challenged me and I realised there is no shame in pausing to catch a breath! What I didn’t anticipate was how hairy skidding down the other side of a gravel slope can be!!
It was such a great run a lovely breeze, shade, birds and butterflies everywhere (I sound like snow white now sorry). I don’t know how far I ran as run keep sulked on a bench and said 1.1K in 23 mins 😂 but I didn’t care, I ran for thirty mins tackled the inclines ,smiled at dog walkers and a man in a big wooly jumper (weird).
So happy I am running in public (sort of) .
