Through the rain, breeze, surprisingly cool temperature and lack of desire to really pick up the marathon training programme, today I mostly plodded along the straightest of lines through the “Park Farm” housing estate just around the corner to see how far it goes. The answer is as far as a bridge linking it to the new bit still being developed where the roads have mysteriously disappeared.
Having checked on the OS Explorer map I have of the area, the road isn’t a Google invention but today was too wet to bother getting the bike out for exploration. Tomorrow I may have another go past it on a 5 mile route but i’ll leave that for the weather and further inspiration to decide. I’ll also need to acquire a new rain guage pretty shortly. The old one got cracked in the move. Bah.
Once again, like last year, I find myself needing more running clothes. Going to check out the sales just as soon as i’ve ordered gutters for the house and got the chimney sorted. Priorities are, after all, far from running based all the time!
A sombre post, on reflection. Ah, well. Things will improve.
