Yes back to blogging after a little break and back to running long (slow, slow, slow)
This morning I snuck out of the house at rude-normal-work-time-rising-0’clock which was shear madness when its half term, but actually was the best time of the day for the weather. The sky was blue, the air was fresh (ok except for the occasional farmy smell) and no one else was out. I managed 10 miles my longest run since The Grizzly back in March, but with two half marathons entered in October I need to get out there. It was a pleasant run, half on road, half cross-country. The best part by far was running through the waist-high (on me) wheat field and getting drenched with the dew! Or maybe it was the smell in the woods of the bluebells.
Anyway that’s how it stands on the running, I am trying to get back at it!
On a non running front this past weekend was The Devon County Show. Which gave Madam and I chance to ooh and aah over all things cute and fluffy
and one that was once fluffy, but was still cute.
We spent a fair amount of time tasting samples, cheese, fudge and anything else we could lay our mitts on. Black cheese that got its colour from Charcoal was surprisingly nice and creamy and the Strawberry and Balsamic Vinegar Fudge was delicious!
Then there was stunt motorbike show
quite amazing but definitely not one to try at home. As ever a good day out.
We are hoping to get to parkrun this weekend, the question is do we go flat and fast, or hilly and tough?
