It started raining as soon as i took the first step of the run today. I’m not complaining just mildly moaning about it. This is my first foray into doing better distances in some hills. The combination of running and inclines is always a painful affair but i feel like i’m getting twice the workout in one session. I came across a Horse rider who was very pleased to see me and gave me a hearty and cheerful “Hello!” because the route i take is circular and i have to go round twice, on the 2nd encounter she seemed a bit awkward and just kind of nodded. I took a photo of this Sheep because it was staring at me after i finished my run but i didn’t take the picture in time and instead i got it’s arse.
I got up at 06:00 today, i would love to say bright as a button but this sadly was not the case. Somehow in that dreary lazy head of mine i decided to go for a run. I would rather have a Bacon sandwich but the good side won this argument. I went down to the beech and past the sailing club where someone was drying themselves down after climbing out of the sea after an early swim. Anyway far from being in good shape i found it hard this morning. Now i’m going to make that bacon sandwich.
I got sent a large bottle of this lovely smelling Radox Muscle Therapy bubble bath. I haven't had a bath in years that is not to say i don't wash i of course have an unquestionably high hygiene standard. That is to say i shower. So in the spirit of trying out products i have been using this stuff for a week and so have all my family. I love the smell of this thick red, gloopy and satisfying bubble bath. I felt thoroughly relaxed and deeply clean. Im going to have to bath more often as the rest of the family have insisted we get this as part of the hygiene routine.
An after work outdoor 4 miler. It doesn't get much better than this when running. Where i work is a wonderful environment to go walking, mountain biking or of course running. I have been lazy lately and using my treadmill to much. After reading the great guest post below it inspired me to get out and with the weather like it is right now in the UK it would be rude not to.
Those mountain bikers in the picture below just ignored me when i said hello to them. If they happen to stumble on this miraculously and recognise themselves “UP YOURS!”
