|Start of the off road running.|
Pretty soon I was deep in the virgin snow, running in an odd knee up high way as the snow was so deep. I was trying out some snow grips on my running shoes and they were proving to be a little too grippy. They allowed little movement in the snow and my lower legs and ankles were aching. Running along the side of the fields I eventually reached the entrance to the woods and before entering removed the grips and shoved them in my pocket.
|Into the woods - beware the witches house !|
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Through the woods and out the other side.
|Through the woods.|
Re-entering the village, and struggling with my fitness, I head for home and somehow manage to keep the legs moving even though I'm feeling pretty bushed. I see my house and slow to a stop at the front gate. Lovely run and I was a little sad that my fitness would not let me stay out longer. Oh well, still it was nice to be able to get out.
