In between enjoying a large breakfast of pancakes and bacon with a side of toast with homemade loganberry jam, and grocery shopping for the big dinner tomorrow, I managed to get outside.
Well, I did cycle to the supermarket too. But in the afternoon, the sun beckoned and I got outside again for a gentle jog (was still full from breakfast!) before the sunset at 4pm. Daylight is surprisingly longer down here in the south west.
The lanes were flooded from yesterday’s storm and mud is beginning to get thick and sticky. Oh yes, the UK has real mud unlike anywhere else, even the Tararuas, which are notorious for their muddy tracks.
Still it was a beautiful day with crisp sun. Even felt festive enough to wear Christmas coloured running kit.
