Runs with John are always a special treat ... only because we hardly ever get to do it... and because he is much faster than me and can go on for much longer distances... another thing is, he flipping loves to run greenbelts and trail... me? Not so much!!!
Today we went out for a little trot! Ha! Thought he was trying to kill me slowly! We did his favorite greenbelts and the screams in my head almost drove me nuts! It’s beautiful for sure. There are ponds and streams and pockets of shade and green is just too lush!! But boy, you have to watch every step and the run is just so different for me! I find it exceptionally hard work! And then as he is running, he tells me that it makes your ankles and feet stronger... all I can think of is making it to road! And flucking hell.... when we do eventually hit the tar my heart sings! I do love the idea of greenbelts running. Something I really need to work on... And we did 8,5km and at my happy pace of 7min/km... so I am thrilled, stinky, sweaty and thrilled!!
