This shrew needs no taming, but it does need a good clean after a day of dancing, yoga, board games and other such revelry. Shrewsbury House is clearly well used and well loved and worth a very hilly run to give it a little TLC. Thank goodness we had our fearless marathon trainer, Olivia to chivvy us up those hills. And thank goodness it's downhill alllll the way home.

We got to task, dusting up high, dusting down low, in, out, in, out and shook it all about and I for one, enjoyed the hoovering a bit too much. I felt a bit like a housewife from the 50s, minus the dress and being showered. Not that that's necessarily something one should aspire to in this day and age (the housewife from the 50s, not being showered.) But you know, each to their own!

See you next week an hour later than usual...right? Yes and we're inching closer to having group runs in the light, hooray :) Remember our social next week after the group run to the Bridge!
