You’re going for a what now?


Is it just a Welsh thing? Adding superflous words to sentances. You’re going for a what now? Is exactly the same as You’re going for a what? Yet we feel the need to add the now. We also have a habit of saying nonsensical things such as “I’ll be there now in a minute”

I digress.

Was off camping in Pembrokeshire in West Wales with some friends over the weekend. Haven’t been in a tent for years and now twice in a week!

Woke up saturday morning feeling a little tired and clearly so did everyone else – I had the cure though – “I’m going for a run, anyone coming?”Β  to which the incredulous reply came “You’re going for a what now?”

Clearly no-one was coming so I did around 8 miles of the coastal path and was so glad I did – Stunning views and although the first few miles were hard I hit my usual mile 3 groove and all was good in the world.

It feels easy when you get views like this
Destination – Sand!
The sea is properly blue here!

When I got back a few hours later there had been very little movement at the campsite. I however felt great and proceeded to tell everyone how great I felt. I had to stop telling everyone how great I felt as I was in danger of being nailed to the nearest tree.

Did I tell you that running makes you feel great?

I feel great.

      1. I also invented a new game. His owner tied him around his waist with a long rope so he wouldn’t wander too far. When bored I would suddenly sprint off and call Ramsey leading to Martin being yanked over and dragged across the field (Ramsey was wearing a harness not a collar so it didn’t hurt him, in fact he seemed to enjoy it as much as me)

  1. Does feeling a little smug add to the wonder fullness of your run? Oh I’ve been out for an 8 Mike run whilst you……. Sat drinking cider? No worries after all that running I’ll be hammered after 1 glass so I’ll soon catch up but for less alcohol! Oh, more reasons to be smugπŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
