Right, that is the first week ticked off, a total of 23 miles run this week. A mix of running with Holly, the running club, friends and Millie.
Today Millie came out on her longest run ever; 6 miles cross country over the South Downs. For people that know the Steyning area I ran the Round Hill Romp route but took a slightly different way at the end to avoid the roads.
Millie had to learn a few new tricks….. how to get over/through a few different stiles and gates and how to push through branches that were blocking her path. We both ended up very wet and muddy but it was great fun. We stopped to chat to a few other dog walkers and people out walking, some people out walking just look at you as though you are mad. I don’t think they realise quite how hot you can get when running; they are all wrapped up and I’m in a short sleeved t-shirt !
One good thing is that I managed to run up most of the very steep section, I still can’t run up the whole thing but I’m now at a point where I can run far more of it than walk…. I can still remember the time when I struggled walking up it and had to stop quite often to get my breath…
So, just over a week until Christmas and not much of this year left…. it is that time of year when you look back at the highs and lows of the previous 12 months but I will save that for another post 🙂
