Pronounced muddier water run.
After a frustrating day yesterday, where having too many work tasks to do meant that I failed to get into the flow of any, I felt it was super-important to get out this morning and run.
Despite being chilly, it was a bright spring-like morning as well… one of those mornings that just simply makes you feel better somehow. This said, I knew exactly what the conditions underfoot would be.
I opted for a short local run… out to Wivelsfield, up through West Wood and back along the Magical Path. As expected it was super-muddy. This was the the kind of mud that has deep footprints & hoof prints, has then frozen, has then been filled up with water and has finally thawed… but only recently, judging by the water temperature! Despite being deep in places and gloriously splashy, it was safer to run through the middle of it than risk sliding on the super-slippery gradients at the margins.
The photos below should tell you all you need to know!
5.6 miles completed in 58 minutes… not bad given all the slip-sliding around!
On another subject all together, whilst I still have your attention: we have a tradition in our house of ‘unexpecting the expected’. The upside of such an arrangement is that there are occasional Tuesday or random day presents. The flipside is obviously that cards or presents aren’t always forthcoming on those days when it’s traditional to give them. Like today, for example.
So Kim, if you’re reading this… Happy Valentines Day gorgeous!
Sorry that the expected card is absent, but maybe there’s something unexpected hiding behind the sofa to make you smile?
