I decided to change my running shoes as the ones I got last year are really for running on the road/paths, and I no longer do that – my running, even in the UK, is all trails.
So I picked up some rather snazzy Hoka One One (pronounced on-ey on-ey) which are more cushioned and also famously good for Achilles issues, and went out for some runs
Nothing earth shattering , but fun!
Couple of laps around Oldbury Woods
Through Plaxtol past Ightham Mote and back
And lastly, upto Mereworth Woods and back
Old Soar Manor – built in 1290, the manor originally belonged to the famous Culpepper family.
Such beautiful countryside around this part of Kent – running around the paths and lanes never gets old.
