Whey, hey, fellow Juneathoners! We’re nearly done! Thirty days of non-stop (unless you’re me!)running/biking/exercising of all descriptions are near an end.
Oh, that makes me very happy indeed. It’s hard to sustain the daily blogging/jogging effort. So, of course I didn’t.
I have got very close to running/biking 100 miles this month, though…To get even closer to the 100 mile a month mark, I went for a cycle today.
I admit. It feels sorta like cheating. There is no way that my kind of biking equates with anything I do in running. Even running one mile is tougher than any mileage I have ever put up on a bike. I hasten to add that’s just me. I like to ride in low gear and take the whole countryside in.
And that’s what I did this evening, hit for the hills of county Meath.
It was rolling green countryside for most of the journey and so a delight for the senses. Honeysuckle and fireweed clamoured for space along the leafy hedgerow, the great tit warbled all kinds of variations on his “teacher, teacher” song, while milking machines hummed in farmyards and cattle stomped and moaned.
And there are delights everywhere, carelessly and abundantly scattered.
Ten miles of this magnificence and I should be satisfied but no. I am hungry. Again. Damn this runner’s appetite.
But I am home and these days, there is plenty of this to look forward to…
And one final day of Juenathon frenzy.
