And the winners are…

Hey folks!

A quick announcement first of all. The winners from the Urban Fruit giveaway (old school- names written on paper, Andy drew them out of a pot).

If you could all email your address to me ( I shall pass it on to the folks at Urban Fruit and they will send your goodies out to you.

Rambles from this week:

Sweatshop on Wednesday was part of a new route and part of an old route- it introduced me to more of the field which I love! I was at the back but kept the other girls in sight, and even managed one mile at 8.55! I was pleased with that (and exhausted after!).

Pump on Thursday- getting used to the new release now.

Run after work on Friday- 3.5 miles- through fields including the long grass section so had to really slow. Very muggy and sticky but enjoyable.

Saturday- Went out for breakfast with friends. Hoped to spot Jenson Button competing in his triathlon. Saw a few cyclists whizzing by but no Jenson. The tea and company more than made up for it. Then got roped into helping decorate our bathrooms!

Sunday- 6.5 mile run looping through the fields twice. As you can tell I am loving running through the fields at the moment. When the sun came out it was baking and almost unbearable though.

This is the part of the field where the grass is very long!

You can sort of see tracks but they are pretty over grown. I love that this is only 5 minutes from where I live.

What is the best thing about where you live?Β

  1. Yay! Thank-you! πŸ˜€
    Well done on your sub 9 minute mile! It was so hot on Wednesday as well.
    As you know I love running through fields too. It really uses up so much energy running with ‘high knees’ to get over the high grass though. I always feel like I’ve had a serious workout by the time I get back!
    I love that we are so close to lots of lakes. They look beautiful in all seasons and it makes for some great running routes year-round.

    1. Contrats!
      The lakes in Milton Keynes were lovely- you always seem to have lovely country routes to run in.

  2. YAY, congratulations & Urban fruit here I come πŸ™‚

    I love the fact that it feels like we live in the countryside but are only 3 miles form town centre πŸ™‚

  3. Well done on your sub-9 min mile, especially in this heat! I love running in fields, I always feel like I’ve had much more of a workout compared to pavements and there’s less likely to be anyone in the way!

  4. I do love more scenic runs and the softer terrain is always preferable to road, but I do hate running through long grass. It whips at my shins and I get (and have!) so many scratches. Not great for summer. And I find it a lot harder to get through. But it is nice to have as a change!

    1. Yes it is tougher and I hate getting scratches but I never notice them at the time, only when I get home.

  5. What a fab route! You are lucky to have that on your doorstep.

    Best bit about where I live? I have the countryside in 10 minutes (drive) in one direction, and the seaside (5 minutes walk) in the other!
