Well I really enjoyed my first real trail run!! As part of a charity walking event at Wimbleball Lake in Somerset I decided I would run the 13k around the lake. I was the only runner and hardly saw anyone during my circuit.
One of the main reasons that I enjoyed the run was the total lack of pressure about pace and speed... when you are up and down narrow paths avoiding trees, roots and big muddy puddles (mini swamps!) then time doesn't seem to matter.. and wow was it peaceful and quiet
Technically, I'm sure that this type of run is something I should throw into the mix now and again as it certainly got my hips and ankles working dealing with terrain and dodging obstacles.
No ribbons, no bling, but a great run rounded off with a coffee and bacon sandwich in the coffee shop.
Happy running and panthering folks
