Trapped In A Place Called Gloucester
Start – Gloucester
Finish – Cheltenham
Today was a bit of a write off.
I got lost in a council estate. Tried heading North East but it just brought me to some waste ground and other town shit. I had to run in circles to escape. More bonus miles. More waste.
I spent so long trying to clear the city limits of Gloucester. It wouldn’t end at all so I stopped off at a Toby Carvery to try to pick my energy levels up.
After the misery of running in Bristol I was again confronted with traffic congestion, loud noise and angry people. If I had any sense at all I’d have headed due northeast from Stroud and never looked back. It feels like I’ve wasted a day.
I ended the day with an early night and some nachos. The plan for tomorrow is to make it to Stratford Upon Avon along a B Road. I’m gonna have to start planning more of my runs as directionless days like this kinda hurt my progress.
