Apple Juice

So, last night my neighbour came home from the south west and presented me with a couple of gallons of the lovely apple juice they make down in that wonderful part of the world. I don’t know what happened, but after a few glasses I came over all funny, staggering and dizzy. I thought I’d best go to bed and rest, obviously having a small glass of apple juice for the vitamins.

So, this morning I’m feeling great, maybe just a wee bit thirsty. I avoided having apple juice with my breakfast, I’ll try another one later, maybe two. Been on the water all day, but knew I was going to suffer on my run today... but no... I set off nice and slow and everything just clicked in to place... the I really enjoyed this one and it flew by. I felt like I could have gone on forever, but Sarah said to stop and although she’s lovely, I bet she can dish it out when she wants to. Walked home, shower and nice cup of tea.

So I heartily recommend Apple juice.... and I need to move to Somerset. Week 7 here I come!

Haha UNM, I live about 20 minutes away from one of those famous apple juice producers! It does quench well doesn’t it? 👍😅

I may partake in a couple this evening actually, although I don’t want to jeopardise parkrun tomorrow (something else I can’t believe I’m saying! 😅)

Looks like yours appeared to enhance your run - it’s clearly medicinal! 👍 Well done, you’re smashing your runs as ever! 👏👏

The Wurzels and their 1976 hit "☺️I am a Cider Drinker" 😪 comes to mind when reading your post of today. Glad you liked your run after drinking that wonderful 'apple juice' which was given to you by your neighbour😊. Tomorrow I will be doing W4R1 as I am repeating all the runs because I have been off📴 running 🏃 for about 6 weeks due to that hip injury I had 🤔😢which is completely better.

Thanks ... yes, I should have had that on the playlist... didn’t change it from last one.

Great that you’re back... I’ve had a couple of weeks out and it’s tough to sit and watch the reports come in.

The best type still has loads of bits in it and supplied in gallon containers... but enough about my childhood... good luck with W7 and I love the t-shirt!

Great t-shirt. Cider is from fruit so isn’t it one of your 5 a day?

It’s very refreshing... when I lived in Winchester there were lots of trips to these farms... I miss that so much. Cheers!

Thanks.. And the juice is great 😂

Great job ! Oh, so that's how it's done... "Apple juice" ! That bit of instruction was missing from my app. I had some tonight along with crepes, but how long before a run do you think one should ingest some for maximum effect ? 😂

I did about 18 bourse 😂. Cheers!

I had a Somerset ancestor. This enables me to sing along to the Wurzels in my best cod Zummerzet without blushing . . . The pear juice is good too 😉
