Juneathon day 8
Actually it was the horse that had the fright of its life!
This evening’s run was going to be the same as yesterday, same time, same route. It is day 8 after all and certainly while I’m on IOW for half term there are limits to where I can run and after a week imagination and creativity is running out.
However when I got up the village as far as the church (uphill) I couldn’t face the further climb up Ashknowle lane so I took a right instead and yesterday’s loop quickly became a plan for two shorter laps in the village. It includes a different bridle path, usually very muddy and covered in nettles which I guessed is more good trail running practice for me seeing as we are getting closer to and planning our Thunder Run team where we’ll be running 10K trail loops in the dark!
A good run, I started out feeling chilly so had a bit of a fast half mile to start(hope I can run that pace for parkrun tomorrow!) As the path opened out from the trees into open fields I gave a poor horse, minding its own business and eating grass, the fright of its life as I zoomed past! I did pause to say sorry!
The two new shorter laps turned out to be 3.8 miles total, the same as the longer loop and the same as yesterday, the day before… I’m in a 3.8 mile rut.
Juneathon running total…. 35.19 miles
