Another adventure! After much morning contemplations about which guided run to choose today and where I’m going to run! Is it hot out there already? Should I just do the run locally on the road? But I decide I quite enjoy being away from cars and running in nature. So, it’s another Park. Little Park I love you, but I don’t think I’m going to enjoy it, so I’m in the car to go further afield. New place again! What’s that going to be like? Bit risky, but hey, just go for it!
2nd run post grad run in Forest Park. Get there and realise no bumbag for my phone and keys! Oops! So start checking the leggings for those nice little slots and zips! I’ve got two with those! 🤨 🤦🏽♀️ Not on these! So, keys tucked inside the top upholstery 👙 and phone in hand, I’m off! Hope the keys survive the potential waterfall! But I’m not going back!
I did 3.95km which is an improvement for me! I don’t include any warm up or warm down in the distance. So I’m happy with that! Then in true mystery fashion, I couldn’t find my way back to the car! I found myself thinking I’ve been here before! So after passing a spot about 3 times and about 15 minutes later, I have a brainwave! Google Maps! (I know doh! 😳)! I’m back in the car!
If there’s any lessons to share here, it’s
1. It’s ok to try something different! Every run counts!
2. Be flexible, the obstacles do tend to keep coming.
3. Make sure your phone is fully charged when you go out. It’s a matter of safety. Some places can be quite quiet, which is lovely, except when your lost!
I’ve enjoyed it! Keep running Runners and have fun!! ❤️❤️
