The Birds

The events of the day have overtaken my absolutely fantastic run this morning.

As per usual I turned up a little late to meet George this morning due to a "toilet" moment and was finding it difficult to get into the groove as my body still felt half asleep but after about 5 miles and a particularly long up hill section I suddenly felt myself get my rhythm.

The run was primarily off road with only a few road sections and very wet underfoot in parts and as mentioned before it was going to be about 20+ miles.....nope it ended up being 24 miles!

What was really apparent today were the birds, hundreds of birds everywhere along the road or in the trees, the fields or the gardens all I wanted next was Alfred Hitchcock.

Feeling great, confidence is better and I reckon with a little time I will be rocking for the Gatliff at the end of the month.


  1. I bet with all those birds around your pace was good too. :)

  2. I wish I could do the sound effects on this blog for you to get the noise. We were crossing this damp field with oak woodland to our left and we annoyed a murder of crows by our very presence. The scattered and flapped about AARRRKK AARRRK....yes, you are right, one eye on the crows, one on the trail :-)
