Long run! Poem.

We are so lucky with the crazy beautiful weather right now, I just want to be outside all of the time. 

As I was unencumbered by any work related activities I wanted to head out and do a bit more than usual. It’s been several months since I’ve run more than 22k so this was the perfect time to take that challenge on. 

I followed my regular path along the river but stretched it on a bit for a total of 30k! 

It’s a really pretty path, dirt and gravel with lots of big Green things along the side. I am sure Gareth could tell me what those are called if he ever gets himself out of the quicksand. 

I do have to stop jumping through thorn bushes though!

I can’t seem to go for a run anymore without coming back scarred and bloodied. 

3:10:18 for the 30k. No world records were broken but I should sleep well tonight!

Into everyone’s life there should come some pooh; winnie the of course! 

Us Two by A. A. Milne

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,
There’s always Pooh and Me.
Whatever I do, he wants to do,
“Where are you going today?” says Pooh:
“Well, that’s very odd ‘cos I was too.
Let’s go together,” says Pooh, says he.
“Let’s go together,” says Pooh.

“What’s twice eleven?” I said to Pooh.
(“Twice what?” said Pooh to Me.)
“I think it ought to be twenty-two.”
“Just what I think myself,” said Pooh.
“It wasn’t an easy sum to do,
But that’s what it is,” said Pooh, said he.
“That’s what it is,” said Pooh.

“Let’s look for dragons,” I said to Pooh.
“Yes, let’s,” said Pooh to Me.
We crossed the river and found a few-
“Yes, those are dragons all right,” said Pooh.
“As soon as I saw their beaks I knew.
That’s what they are,” said Pooh, said he.
“That’s what they are,” said Pooh.

“Let’s frighten the dragons,” I said to Pooh.
“That’s right,” said Pooh to Me.
“I’m not afraid,” I said to Pooh,
And I held his paw and I shouted “Shoo!
Silly old dragons!”- and off they flew.

“I wasn’t afraid,” said Pooh, said he,
“I’m never afraid with you.” 

So wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,
There’s always Pooh and Me.
“What would I do?” I said to Pooh,
“If it wasn’t for you,” and Pooh said: “True,
It isn’t much fun for One, but Two,
Can stick together, says Pooh, says he. “That’s how it is,” says Pooh.

Makes me want to read the books all-over again. Got to love Pooh Bear!

  1. Pooh is great. Best left unadulterated though, โ€˜the Tao of poohโ€™ I read at the time, not that great, maybe it passed me by. Pooh says it better๐Ÿ˜Š Great run, well done.
