With lots going on I was given some extra farm jobs on Friday. I had to fit in a run so combined the two.
Cows are routined ladies and were patiently waiting for me to undo the gate and let them out. After that it was off for a run on farm road. I forget how lovely the laneways are. They are designed to care for the cows’ hooves so are soft and well kept.
By the time I’d had a little run it was time to close the paddock where the girls were enjoying their turnips. They literally eat them like spaghetti. They pull them up then slowly munch and suck the long leafy stalks into their mouths. They way they relish each bite makes turnips seem quite delicious… at least from observation level.
Then it was time to head out and off the farm to finish the run. All up I did about 4kms on the farm. We have plenty of laneways and I could do around 20kms without going out the gate. It’s not always possible though due to work that’s going on around the place.
Run done and jobs done it was time to get ready for the big party for our PT’s 50th birthday. Pauly had pulled out all the stops and put together a rather stunning costume complete with growing a beard which was shaped into a moustache just a few days ago.
Introducing Wyatt and Josephine…
We had a great night but getting up and being ready to leave home at 8am this morning was a challenge. Running 6.4kms in the first Launceston Running Club event for the 2016 was even more of a challenge and right now the thought of running Convicts and Wenches 25kms tomorrow makes me want to go and hide under my doona. Perhaps Josephine can handle the demon drink but the Unsporty Woman seriously thinks she could become a member of the Temperance Society!
Wish me luck!
Happy running 🙂
