Last Thursday I burnt my mouth on a hot aubergine. I now have ulcers all over my tongue and it nearly put me off doing parkrun this morning. The bleak grey sky didn't help, but the thought of a nice post-run swim and hot chocolate proved just motivating enough. I can't say it was my fastest run, but it was enjoyable. And the water on the heath has just begun to warm up enough that I could stay in for about 15 minutes. I particularly enjoyed being dive bombed by a heron. Afterwards, instead of hot chocolate, I headed to the local farmer's market and bought the world's most expensive goat's cheese and some beetroot. There are times when I wish I lived closer to Lidl.
