Last night I went for a middle distance run instead of a short fell race. It was a great night for the hills, although I forgot my headtorch and finished in the dark!
This run started out with 10 miles on mostly trail, before returning through the mountains. A very windy day.
A frosty day with magical views. 31km, 2807m climbing, 6hrs 3mins!
Slieve Donard, Binnian, Bearnagh, Commedagh.
It has been a good few months since I have been running in the mountains, as my training this year has all been focused on Rotterdam Marathon. Thankfully that experience is behind me, so it’s back to the hills for the rest of the year! I will now focus on building up my training to focus on some local mountains events, and my second ‘A’ race of 2015, the CCC at the UTMB.
For the first run I opted for a slooooooww recce of section 3 of the Denis Rankin Round. My legs were sore, but what more could I expect just 7 days out from Rotterdam!
Sit back and enjoy….!
