Cross country 5.75km


Yesterday morning I ran in the 5.75km cross country race at my local course. Not much to say about it except that I was one minute quicker than last year. It's always good to note some progress. Feels much better than writing about setbacks!

Today I managed a 2 hour jog, you can't really run in 6" of new snow; it was over an undulating woodland course which normally takes about 1hr 15mins. The training effect is good. I hope to do some trail races over distances of 20km - 50km later in the year.

Have to see how it goes.

I wish everyone an enjoyable and injury free run through 2013.

Don't have 6" of snow here yet. I've had a bit of a bug the last few days, so I've been resting. Looking forward to getting out again but the effect has been quite pleasant, giving myself permission to loaf a bit when not at work!

You'll be galloping over the fells and the moors before you know it!

The wide wide sky and the song of the lark and the path with no-one else in sight is worth more than the effort - quite something! Near to heaven I think.
