Oh hay hay hay!! (see what I did there?)
What a busy day it has been! I was at the barn by 10am, boots on my feet and ready for my lesson at 10:30, and then the dark, dark clouds rolled over, thunder and lightning struck, and it poured! Poured, folks, poured! Which meant… so much for my grand plans of “a ride in the fields and then a run home through the country."
I won’t bore you with the details, but by the time the weather improved, I had had my lesson with the instructor, and went for my usual walk around the fields, my desire to run 25km (16 miles) home was approximately zero. And then I realized my running shoes were in my dad’s car leaving the cottage… booooo (but secretly yay!). I had a real excuse. I could not run.
And so I came home, ate some food, unpacked my stuff, tidied my room, and then… (drum roll please) sucked it up, changed into my running clothes, and RAN (see next post for the dirty details, but it was a glorious glorious run and I am still high on endorphins from it)!!!!
