Darkness was falling as I ran over the fields of Horringer. I couldn't entirely see where to place my feet on the paths which were wet and in places big puddles meant jumping over or running sideways to detour. This was good fun and of course I didn't see a soul in the gloom. None of the usual dog walkers that a fine day brings out.

I ran fairly slowly in the conditions but I was just pleased to have run as I was in 2 minds thinking initially that as it was raining that I wouldn't bother. It has been a long hard week and as it is wet I was thinking I could give it a miss. Its amazing how the devil in the brain conjurs up all many of excuses to avoid a run. Its too hot, its too cold, I will go later, I will go tomorrow. However its on occasions like this that when you do go for a run you feel so much better for it.

The picture of Horringer farm is from a week or so ago when there was still a frost on the fields.


  1. Interesting how all runners have this enertia problem particularly this time of year..roll on the warmer weather when getting up and out early in the morning is a real pleasure
