Bank Holiday = Rest Day

Rest from work. Rest from fence construction. Rest from housework. Rest from running. Hooray.

With my own home grown Rhubarb, DSCN2519I did make this Sour Cream Rhubarb Pie which is deliciousDSCN2564the two eldest madams like it and they don’t even like Rhubarb! Promise to post recipe tomorrow.

Having kept a close eye on BBC weather, we knew the best part of the day was going to be the morning. After our weekly trip to the recycling centre to deposit one dead Silver Birch tree, we headed out to Grand Western Canal at Tiverton.


We watched the horse, Taffy, getting tethered up and then pull the barge.


We walked a Mile along the Canal to the Mile Marker! Once many years ago that was a 1 on it!








We read that this bridge (Tidcombe Bridge) had to be built where it is, as the Bishop of Exeter refused to let the Canal pass with 100 yards of his home! This causes the Canal to loop a bit.DSCN2550

The Canal is going to be the venue of my next long run! I can’t wait. I will take mt camera and start the other end which is nearer to home.



About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    I love the Great Western Canal. There’s a really nice pub at Sampford Peverell (can’t remember its name though). While not recommended for a mid-run drink, it’s definitely worth a walk down.

  4. I don’t want the recipe, just the pie 🙂 will come and collect! xx
