On hawthorns

I feel like one of those hawthorn bushes you see on the hills.Windblasted to an angle of about 45 degrees to the ground. I've just got in from doing 8 x 500m intervals (with 90 sec rests and 2 miles warm up/cool down) and the ferocious wind was scouring the fields. Even the sheep were lying down, like creamy-grey boulders, noses flat to the ground. In the copse I ran by, trees were lying at all angles, some propped up on those few that remained upright. Some had flattened the perimeter wire fences. It was certainly bracing. The intervals went fine and I covered about 7 miles in all.
Smileyrating 8/10. Deeply satisfying
