The oil seed rape has finally mostly gone to seed, so I ran the local loop that I haven’t been able to manage for a while (even with the help of antihistamines!)
No dogs for company again, but hopefully that won’t be for too much longer. Though it must be said that getting up and going straight out is actually easier without them 🤫 but don’t tell them I said so 🤫
Really enjoyed being out there on my own today, with only the Garmin to talk - I think I’m finally getting the hang of what her* beeps mean, so I told her she was a cheeky bugger for telling me I was behind pace! I didn’t even meet any dog walkers till I was on my cool down walk near home, at which point I stopped to chat With the one I recognised. It turns out he’s partway through doing a C25K with a running group at his work, so I showed him where to find this forum.
*her name is Betty, I don’t know why, I have a theme for my connected devices and Betty is not part of the theme.
Pictured are the path beside the oil seed rape, the outward leg looking across to the path home, and the return leg (which is one of my favourite views).
