What is that in the distance? Oh that’s right that is madam. Yes, that was how it was at Killerton parkrun yesterday. She was not to be seen. I had lent her my running socks, the magic ones, the ones with wings, so she romped home with a PB 107 seconds better than last weeks one. I however came in a while later without a PB, after all I only have one pair of magic socks! Really pleased for her but realise now she is indeed that speck in the distance one I shan’t catch due of course to my advancing age! Other excuses available on request.
This morning I stepped out in to minus 1.5 degress temperatures for a LSR. 9 miles is not very long but believe me it was very very slow. My legs never seemed to warm up, feeling like jelly most of the way due maybe in part to a hole in the leggings around the groin area, not the ideal time to have extra ventilation but they are my favourite ones!
After warming, up showering, scoffing breakfast, it was off to Dartmoor with the family for a walk. Three miles that had it all.
Water falls both man-made and water made,
Streams to play pooh sticks in
Cute fluffy panda calves
A swiss house with an ornamental garden
Perfect weekend except of course for that speck!
