Mini post but just wanted to share the date with anyone local...Highclere Castle estate grounds are once again open for walking/running! Sadly dogs not allowed though, Ted isn't happy about this 🙁.
I've just done a 4 mile easy pace run through part of the estate, it takes you past the Diana Temple (I really must look up the history of it) a beautiful lake, past the castle itself and through ancient woodland. So beautiful but part of the route involves navigating VERY t bracken. How I didn't fall over is a mystery 🤣
I'm incredibly lucky to live and train in such a beautiful part of the world. I know it's been said plenty of times before and I admit to smirking the idea off a few years ago but getting out in the fresh air really does do wonders for your physical and mental health. I've felt a bit bleugh the last week or so (was it obvious in my last post?!) but I feel so much better now. I didn't push myself on that run, even walked a tiny bit of the hill but that's obviously what I needed.
Happy running/walking/skipping everyone 🏃♀️😁
