Well, not quite a secret. My daughter's discovered an extra file on her mp3 player and I spilled the beans. But she's sworn to secrecy and me and the dog set off for w1r2 this morning. Lovely woods and field to go through today, but lots of other dog walkers and I found myself heading in the opposite direction in order not to have to stop and chat. Dog had other ideas and dug her heels in the ground to do a poo which I then had to bag and put in my pocket to carry on my run with me. Eeew. Must remember to go for a wee myself before going for these runs ...
Got half way round before stopped by dog walker for a chat - it would have been very rude not to have done. Put Laura on pause and hope it didn't compromise the run too much. Lovely morning for a run though and it helps to be able to put life in perspective. By the time I was on the second to last run my hips were aching and running up a mountain (ok, slight slope) wasn't the best route. Even the dog had her tongue sticking out - I tried it but thought if anyone saw me they'd think I'd gone mental.
As Laura was gently saying it was time for my 5 min cool down walk the dog was determinedly tugging in the direction of the car. She'd had enough and it was only the sunshine and calling encouragement to her that kept us both going. Back home for a drink of water and drop of apple cider vinegar with half a carrot left over from my daughter's lunch box and a spot of decadence - the crusty edge of a homemade carrot cake. Are you sure chocolate doesn't count as part of my 5 a day?
Next challenge - how do I manage a run on Saturday without my husband finding out?
