More more

I was torn on sunday about whether to run until I saw the weather and then figured my fankles (new word covering my feet and ankles) would survive one more push.  The last few runs I’ve been trialing a thin ankle support and it seems to be making a difference.  Plus I wanted to get used to running on tired legs and so another longish run was the order of the day.

A further 12 miles with as much climbing as I could get in (going all the way up Witches Point as hard as I could go after 7 or 8 miles surprised me)

I also had some sad news on saturday night – Master Robert had died. He was a lovely old guy who lived in the big house at the Cwm and owned the Bruce Estate.  He loved the beach and area as much as I do and was always picking up litter. Guess I’m the only one left doing that now.

Will be odd to run past here knowing he isn’t around. Often used to stop to chat with him.

Still – life goes on and so does the run. Racing the tides today

Just the perfect morning to be out before the trippers

I found a map! Still exploring the Dunraven end of my run

Badly focused cookie – Best thing about long distances – I eat what i feel like out there

Tide racing – Tide won – Still the odd rock scramble never hurt anyone

Always worth it

So in the last 4 days I covered 37 miles of pretty hard going terrain.  The fankle, although aching a little is holding up. I’m just utterly knackered. Few days off I think

    1. I googled it against my better judgement but was safe 😉 Thing is those little buggers would melt away instantly in a backpack. I need melt resistant stuff. Even my baked honey biscuits melt. I hate to think of the temps in that backpack!
