Another early start (5.30am) to deal with one of my new batch of rescue chooks who has been causing us some worries, and to get the rest of the egg squad fed and watered. Anyway, once I was happy that Emily Alice Chicken was ok, I got out the door. Not TOO IMPRESSED with the dratted weather, but at least rain makes for a nice cool workout when pushing hard.
This started off as a sort of normal paced workout, not too hard, not too slow, but I noticed somehow or other a couple of faster miles crept in there. I probably made them up on the downhills because that second mile was on a longish uphill and the Garmin seconds sure added themselves on there!
Just going to get on my soapbox (because I can, or at least until someone edits me!) and say that added here is a picture of what a poor little chook looks like when she is thrown out, quite literally, from the so-called "enriched colony cages" which are meant to be higher welfare! Please, please, PLEASE guys, buy free range, or better still have a few rescue girls of your own! They will pay you back in eggs and you will never need to watch a tv for entertainment again!
