Left miles from home to run back...

I was imagining how an unwanted pet might feel as I was left  on the side of the road miles from home.

It was the warmest day I’ve run in and I had to strip off a few layers – amusing a couple of walkers. I made sure I kept drinking too.  The route followed the mountain river down from the Sixt waterfall to Taninges,  snow topped mountains towering above.  The path alternated between decent  wide paths and narrow pebble and root tracks.

Having played it safe this week and not skiied, I first tripped badly in the woods and then turned my ankle over on the edge of the road I’d rejoined near Taninges.  Both could have been disasterous but I was lucky!  The body core strength exercises I’ve been working on  kept me upright and although I would hear the ligaments in my ankle over the loud Nano I am amazed to report that no real damage seems to have been done!

I made it to town after a couple of hours but hadn’t checked that my small phone worked so took a while to get in touch with D who had been shopping and was hunting wild life in the woods.

Reunited we returned to the flat for lunch. I’m quite stiff as I wasn’t able to have my freezing bath (shame) so will have to keep moving – cleaning the flat should sort that problelm out. (would prefer a lie down really)

Looking forward to my 18 mile run once I get home – a date to be named soon.
