A few days later and I'd determined to do the run in the daylight so I could see what other routes lay open for future runs. So back to the entrance of the footpath and off I go.
|The start of miles of lovely running|
|A river runs through it|
Before then I needed to go shopping. We need a new fridge as the old one is on it's last legs (bit like me). We tried to buy one just before Christmas but in a failed shopping trip we came back with a microwave and an LCD TV. So determined to not make the same mistake again we set off with the steelly determination to only look at and buy a fridge. So shopping done and a new home computer purchased I set my self the task of buying a new fridge next weekend and going out for an exploritory run on Tuesday (tonight). p.s. the computer is very sexy, I was seduced.
So tonight armed with the usual trusty torch and the addition of a pocket of Skittles ( just for nutritional reasons obviously) I set off for the exploritory run. It was quiet late and seeing as I seem to be the only person in the county to have a trusty headtorch as soon as I'd gone through the gate into the reserve I was on my own. Lovely clear night and I mulled over the idea of running naked through the fields as it would have given me something trully epic to pop on the blog. In the end I decided against it and continued on.
Eventually came to a part I'd never been down before, this was going to take me well off the beaten track. I sucked on another Skittle and headed on. It was fab. I felt all alone in the world, in the middle of nowhere and needed to keep running just to get home. Then I sort of got lost, well not trully lost as I sort of knew my rough position .... ish....... just not which direction etc I should be going in. Eventually after about 20 minutes of running sort of in a circle back to where I started I eventually came to a road. AHA! I know where I am......about a mile from where I though I was. Oh Well. So now I could head for home. Eventually got in after an hour and 20 minutes and the longest run so far this year a shade under 8 miles.
