A Run Around Gedling Country Park With Mollie

A Run Around Gedling Country Park With Mollie The Collie And My Husband. Hello friends. Happy Thursday. So how are you keeping?

The weather has been amazing just lately so yesterday morning when it was nice again, we got out for a run somewhere different for a change.

A Run Around Gedling Country Park With Mollie:

Making Myself Leave The House. Lock-down and sticking indoors when it is lovely outside really does play with your mental health.

You get to the point where you do not want to leave the house, ever but you know you have too because if you don’t you never will.

I have to talk myself into going to work and if I did not work, I don’t think I would have left the house at all over the last few months if I’m honest.

The worry of catching Covid-19 off someone is very stressful. When I’m at work and I hear someone cough or sneeze, I turn around and walk the other way if I can and as fast as I can.

I am also forever stressing and cleaning my hands with hand wash.

A Run Around Gedling Country Park With Mollie The Collie And My Husband. Yesterday morning it was nice to get out for a run and forget about our troubles for an hour or 2!!

It was lovely to go for a run somewhere different and I have missed visiting Gedling Country Park. It wasn’t too busy but the car park was starting to fill up when we were leaving.

Breath-taking Views And You Can Even See Nottingham:

This lookout point brick wall is all new since we last visited. Lots of things are changing and I love spotting new things. What an amazing view!! Breathtaking!! You can see for miles and miles here.

It is just amazing looking out, seeing for miles and spotting places we know of or have visited.

If you look over to the right you can see Nottingham from here. We enjoyed looking out and spotting where there looked like new houses being built.

What’s Mollie Looking At!? I wonder what Mollie is looking at!? She was so focused on something!!

I just stopped to take some photos of some big daisies, as you do. I miss taking photos of flowers. So I jumped over the step to take some photos.

A Run Around Gedling Country Park With Mollie:

We had a nice run around Gedling Country Park them put Mollie’s lead back on so she could just chill and as it was getting hotter and she was starting to get tired.

A few more breathtaking views around the park, a few steep hills that my husband make me run up and it was back to the car for cold drinks of water all around then back home.

It really cheered me up going for a run somewhere we have not visited for a while and I can not wait to visit again soon.

A Run Around Gedling Country Park To Restart My Fitness Journey:

This week I have started to go running again and I am trying to get fit. Going for a run somewhere you don’t get too very often blow the cobwebs away and I am starting to love running again. So what do you think of today’s photos? Do they make you want to go out for a walk?

Space to enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends, opportunities for exercise and activities and nature and wildness on your doorstep!

Is Gedling Country Park Open: Yes the park is open and you can park in the car park but the cafe, children’s play area and Parkrun are not open just yet to Covid-19. I am sure things will not be too long until they are starting to open though.

Gedling Country Park Parkrun: Gedling country park is one of my favourite Parkrun courses to run as it is a very tough course. Lots of up-hills and I mean up-hill. Some are really steep!! and lots of downhills. Definitely a course to try and tick off your Parkrun list!! Keep an eye out on the Parkrun website if you live nearby for when it will be starting up again after the pandemic.

Lastly, on Saturday mornings we like to travel around different parts of Nottinghamshire and beyond. Finding somewhere fun for our morning family runs. When my husband has a morning off work that is!

We love to try out different Parkrun courses. We are really lucky to have a variety of Parkrun’s that we can go to. This way we never get fed up just going to the same one. Some are flat and fast, some hilly, all challenging!! Parkrun Fun In Gedling.

    I’m so sorry you’re so anxious about the virus. Being holed up in your house can definitely mess with your mental health – I totally get it. Hopefully things start feeling a little easier soon.
