Yesterday I drove nearly 300 miles from Devon to North Yorkshire, it was the most tedious 5 hour drive EVER. All motorways, so dull dull dull.
Of course I packed my running kit and within 10 minutes of arriving I was out seeking a running adventure. Oh I love to run somewhere new. I found a river/canal, I found a path can’t get better than that.
Managed three miles then it was back to the Hotel pool for half an hour swim. Now I am not a strong swimmer and only manage breast stroke, its not something I enjoy really, but having a small, warm pool to myself was fabulous, in fact if I could get this more often, then I would swim more often. However after a while I got bored, had neck ache, felt dizzy from the circular route I was taking and began to feel like a zoo polar bear with OCD, at this point I got out and went in the hot tub! Heaven. Afterwards, I stuck my nose in the steam room but boy its hot in there! Madam commented that it sounded like I was on holiday when I told her of my activities, but I am here working- honest, just staying in a real nice hotel for a change.
Here are a few shots of Boroughbridge, a nice Yorkshire town, tomorrow I will bring you details of my run in Ripon!
