A Romulan Minefield

"Detach the hull section and leave this system immediately. We will not tolerate espionage!"
- Romulan Captain

I awoke from my evening postprandial snooze on the sofa with the sound of the television in the background with the dulcet tones of Captain Archer working on defusing a Romulan mine attached to the Starship Enterprise's hull plating his predicament made harder finding Lieutenant Reed was pinned down by said mine.

I too felt like Lieutenant Reed, pinned to the sofa but whilst it was not the bomb ticking, for me it was the clock.

Dragging myself up to the pile of running kit I got changed and pushed myself through the door feeling rubbish on the first hill but decided to make my way to the woods and just follow my nose. Not quite "To boldly go where no man has gone before" but enough to just wind down and enjoy the evening sunshine. Ever so often I saw people but chose to not run past them but to duck down a path and see where it took me....and I did it again and again then again.

The shadows lengthened, the pipistrel bats came out for their late evening snack and I just enjoyed running down unknown animal trails.

Time to return home and only realised the time when I got through the front door, a quick mapping found I had run 10 miles (16 km) and hadn't even realised

  1. I think that is the best way to run and really have a good time while doing it.
