Just Browsin’….

Just Browsin’….

Yesterday, I had another lazy day, to recover from the Perth Kilt Run on Saturday. As usual, running/jogging wasn’t too far from my mind…


After I wrote my review of the Perth Kilt Run, I found myself browsing more races between now and the end of the year.  Yes, I know I have the TT10K on Saturday. Then I have the Great Scottish Run (10k) in October, and the Mo-Running 10k in November. But, I was just looking….

Before I knew it, I had signed up for my fourth ‘inaugural’ event of the year (the first was The Color Run UK event in London, the second was the RnR Dublin, the third is this Saturday’s TT10K), and my FIRST EVER trail run: The CowalFest 5k.

Now, I have never done a trail race. Ever. This Saturday’s TT10K has two trail sections, and so that will be my first proper off-road run.  I do have trail running shoes, but I mostly wear these when it is raining, to keep my feet dry! Now, they are going to be put through their paces! This run takes place as part of CowalFest, which was originally a walking festival, but it has now branched out into other sports, including cycling and now running. The run takes place in Benmore Botanic Gardens, so it should be beautiful!

I'm pretty sure this is what the trail run will be like...

@TheWelshWookie and I have registered for the 5k cause we’re too scared to sign up for the 10k to see how we get on, I’m sure it’ll be an experience! This run is a week after the GSR, so it’ll be another pair of back-to-back weekends of running!

Today’s stats:

Run: no run, but I did go for a 5k walk instead 🙂

Time: I didn’t time it, but I think it was about 50 mins or so

Trainers: FreeRuns

Weather: Sunny

Favourite  radio track of the day: a little bit of Dario G. This would be good for a warm up/cool down too, I reckon 😉

As I said in my blog title, I was just browsin’, but that can be dangerous! Now that I’ve signed up for my 9th run of the year, I’m now on the lookout to make it a round ten…..

I also came across this while browsin’, and it made me chuckle… 😉


Today’s life lesson: Always lean forward in a sprint finish- Christine Ohuruogu did, and it won her Gold for the 400m at the World Champs in Moscow today. Go girl!

What do you find yourself browsin’, and spendin’ on when on the internet?
