some cows and a chicken

After the Best Nights Sleep Ever, I woke today with surprisingly OK feeling legs but very sore neck and shoulder muscles from my day in the saddle. 8 hours in front of the computer did not help the situation and by mid afternoon, I needed to get out and run just to loosen everything up a bit.

I really wanted about 10kms and had a route in mind but I needed to be quick as I had to be back in time for SonNumberOne and SonNumberTwo’s return from their swimming classes. The route was a loop, heading out along the river and under the bridge where I would turn round and retrace my steps before heading off through a field, across the railway track and then back through town and home.

After reaching the bridge and doing a quick about turn, I veered off into the field. About a hundred metres in, I suddenly realised that there were cows in the field, standing right near the exit I was aiming to use on the opposite side. I wasn’t sure if I should carry on as there was about 30 of them but they are not usually known for their aggressive behaviour. Although, they are big. And there were lots of them. And I was wearing a burgundy running top which could perhaps look a bit red and maybe cows are like bulls and are angered by the colour red. So, being fundamentally cowardly, I turned round and ran home the way I came meaning today’s run was 8.15kms.

Juneathon so far: Run – 137.57kms / Cycle – 116.34kms

    Hmmm, I think the chance of the cows being enraged by your burgundy top and charging you en masse is probably quite small. However I would probably have turned round too!

      Yes, I think you’re probably right. But they are still very big. What if one fainted at the sight of a sweaty, bald man running past and fell on me…
