My run today was off road around Little Horringer Hall Farm. I did two laps of an undulating course around a very green wheat field. There was a need to constantly watch my footing to avoid twisting an ankle. One side of the field was ploughed early in the spring removing the footpath created by the action of walkers over time. Where the path has gone walkers have created a new pathway through the wheat crop.
The ground was very dry and again their was a need to watch your footing to avoid stepping into some of the larger cracks in the ground. Ironically today the Environment Agency has announced that much of East Anglia has been declared a drought area but not Suffolk.
My run today was a good one and enjoyable as I was off road and felt good and strong at the end of a 5 mile run.
My Juneathon total at day 10 stands at 41.25 miles. If I am to beat my Janathon total of 134 miles then I will need to do another 94 miles in the last 20 days at an average of 4.7 miles a day. I can achieve it if I avoid injury and have enough stamina to complete it
