The naked woodland run

Phew, that took some getting out of the house, derailed by a neighbour, I could see time slipping towards my looming night shift..... But I'm out gqr too long after the weetabix fuel had been Dispatched πŸ€“.... Decided on a non towpath run, so headed towards the castle (minimal car usage, needs must for time).

Just what the Dr ordered, more gradients than I remembered but nice gentle-ish ones, across the cattle grid, by the lodge it's off to the right and a nicely trodden trail, preferable to tarmac and my Brooks ghosts giving plenty of grip.

I'd planned on the castle being about 2.5k one way, just a little short, but I'll find an extra 1k to add later.

All in all a nice gentle run, and today's soundtrack was the rat-a-tat-tat of the unseen woodpeckers πŸ™ƒ.

Happy running you lot stay safe out there!!

Naked?...

Sounds lovely! The woodpeckers are really starting to drum right now. I heard them again on my run in the woods this morning

.I discovered a half eaten box of weetabix, way past their best before date, in my kitchen cupboard at the weekend. I haven't touched them since lockdown 1 and working from home. I now realise I don't actually like them that much, and that it was only a quick convenient workday breakfast. Sorry!

Nakedness Diane πŸ™ˆ,

The woodpecker's were really going at it this morning, quite a magical sound, it's amazing how far it carries....they tap at approximately 15 taps a second!! "Woodpecker Wikipedia πŸ€“".

I can honestly say I've never found a 1/2 eaten box of weetabix in any house I've lived in.....🀣🀣

You mean you eat a whole box at a time?

It's a bit nippy to be running naked πŸ₯Ά (yeah, ok, I'm being juvenile but you asked for it πŸ˜‚)

There's no other option πŸ‘ I'm generally moving about 70,000 litres of the white stuff each night shift so it's always on hand as the homestead unpasteurized πŸ˜‹ all the goodness
