Sunday morning I got out early for a 4 mile easy long run. It was a lovely day and I went for the trails/hills. Near the top of the hill I saw cows, and the perfect opportunity to take a picture for Annie of a square, English cow. See what I mean, that straight back, that tail at a right angle, it’s not a curvy horse is it? See the cow on the right? With its head down? A split second later it charged me – yes reader, I screamed like a girl and ran! I think the poor cow was so surprised by the scream it stopped! But we did have a report on the news a couple of weeks ago about someone being seriously injured by a herd of cows and for some reason I remembered it then!!
well I survived to enjoy the view from the top;
If you can see this on a big screen you will see Preston in the distance.
monday was a rest day, so I did.
Tuesday – yay finally achieved a Tuesday run. Got up at six, first thought ‘oh I don’t want to get out of bed’. However I have been reading a book about positive mental attitude, so even though I wasn’t feeling it I said to myself ‘ I love running, I am getting up to go for a run’ and I did. Interesting that it worked, so easy! It was a lovely morning, dry but a little bit cool. Just 2miles, job done.
It was an interesting day at work. My colleague Suzanne had arranged for a film crew to come in and video us for an informative piece to go on the trust website. We were all dreading it, but the producer was so lovely and put everyone at ease it turned out to be a really affirmative day. I hope the video is useful to visitors to the site.
Wednesday went out after work, 3miles. The nights are drawing in and I made it home just before sundown. Maybe running by the canal wasn’t such a good idea given the dusky evening! The part I ran through goes through an old industrial site and some woodland, every little creaky noise made me think that I was being followed!
Thursday was another rest day.
Friday was a bit of a cheat. When I got home from work I found that househusband for the week had prepared roast chicken and chilled Chardonnay. 😃😋 It was too good to resist and I didn’t go for a run afterwards as I thought that I might, so I did it this morning instead. Anyhow I’m going to count that as a complete week and I’m pleased with it.
next week those 2 mile runs turn into 3 mile runs so I’m going to need to find an extra 10-15 minutes for each one. I have my route planned so I just need to get up early!
I hope that your running is going as well, whether it’s 2minutes or 20miles, You know you can do it! Happy running😊
