The last Sunday run of this challenge, and so it seemed only fitting to go out onto the trails and put in a few miles. Now, I know I said I might do 5 miles today, but once I got out and going I just decided to see how I felt, and whilst this was by no way the fastest off road run I have done, it just felt good.
I am going to repeat myself for the umpteenth time, but off road running is my favourite running, yeah it might be a bit slower and also slightly harder but it is just so much more interesting. You can’t beat running in changing scenery, where the ground under your feet changes by the metre and you can go across fields, woods and various other landscapes, brilliant.
My route today is basically a joining up of a couple of my favourite routes, and it’s good because there is only a couple of very short road sections that join up the trails, and also because it has a variety of landscapes to go across.
Normally on a Sunday morning there are quite a few people out and about walking around, yet today I only saw 4 people, no idea where they are all and to be honest it didn’t matter as it was like having the entire area to myself.
I have 5 days to go, but I am by no means counting my chickens yet, as you just don’t know what might happen.
