Today was lovely and warm, I over dressed for the run but it was not until my walk home that I felt the heat on my legs, Should of worn my shorts.
I used the warmup run to get to my local park and ran laps around the park finishing with a cooldown run back home.
Not too busy in the park, it was easy to keep my distance from other people.

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!!
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???
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.
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 🙂
