Friday I won a medal, Not the nice metal bling type that I love to hang on my wall, This medal displays the words “PLONKER OF THE WEEK” on it, Yep on Friday mornings run I managed to get lost AGAIN!!
Fridays workout was supposed to be a 40 minute interval run, I did not pre-plan my journey as was not sure on the exact distance that I would cover. The idea was that I would run 20 minutes out, turn around and then follow the same route in reverse – What could possibly go wrong???
The run started off good, it did not take long before I found a lovely footpath that ran through some woods, I followed that all the way through and continued along the road on the other side. After a while it was time for my return journey so I turned around to retrace my steps. That was when my troubles really began.
I got back into the woods again and then I got totally lost. I landed up going through several fields before finally giving up and asked Google Maps for help. I managed to locate the nearest road and headed for that.
I must have added about 3 miles extra to my run and lost around 40 Minutes but I eventually made it back to my car.
I was covered in mud and had soaking feet but I was still smiling during my drive home 🙂
