This afternoon saw me take Madam to represent her new school for the first time at cross-country.
It was seemingly a nice day but that wind was cold. It was muddy.
and this is just where us parents stood the course must have been a lot worse and even had a stream to run through. Action shots of madam…
I did go and I parked at the start of town and run to the car park where we meet, not bad for someone who did not want to go out. The leader told us we were going to do a hilly tour of town. I pointed out that every run in Devon was hilly no matter where you run, but this was deliberate hills going up one several times incorporating it in a loop. It was a good run and nice to run with people for a change I always feel faster and it seems not so hard either. I feel stronger and fitter also. Why is that?
5 hilly miles done I even resisted the chance to jump in my car when we passed it and went back to the start before heading back uphill to the car and home.
