My thats a biggun!

To what am I referring?  Who has the dirtiest mind out there (Dont answer I think I know!)

This of course!

Fresh giant cliff collapse!

Wish I’d been around when it happened – must have been spectacular!  The stack on the left is still standing too!  So I had to investigate

Wonder how many tonnes it is?

I had a scramble over it nosing for fossils but found nowt.  Bit wary of what might still be to come so kept within arrrghhhggh shit run distance

I did another 7 miles and everything is feeling pretty great at the moment, less pain and stiffness from foot afterwards too.

Apart from the rockfall it was pretty spectacular as usual!

Just get off your ass

Saturday morning and feeling decidedly lazy. Thought hey I could just take a rest day and then realised there was no need and I was just being slack now.

Tide was in but the cliffs are always there!

As always super glad I got my ass out there!

 

 

Slowly slowly catchee monkey

Or however the phrase goes.  I took almost a full week off again, mainly as I was busy with other stuff to tell the truth but still figure it doesn’t hurt to come back too fast. So sunday was a nice relaxed effort along the cliffs and home. Or it would have been relaxed if I had any sort of form at all now, everything feels so hard again.

However it did have an upside, as I was bent in half at the top of a hill dying I saw both a four and a five leaf clover!  I await my luck with interest!

Further on I found some sort of dangly thing in a tree – It was a bit Blair Witch again to be honest

All in all though it was a good run (despite the blowing noises) of five miles. The last few days have been fine with the foot, i’m doing strengthening and stretching exercises and will continue the easy runs for a while as I recover.

Oh and its still beautiful out there!

I’ll taper tomorrow

When the suns shining make hay! And tapering is overrated anyway. And when you see the photos you may agree!  Only seven miles along the back and back along the cliffs purely for the joy of being outside in the sun and alive =)

Next up – Cornwall!

Up early

Had a days work marshalling on saturday and so got up super early (for me) at half six to run. I was so glad I did, set me up nicely for the day!

The beach feels different at that time of day and it was a sheer pleasure to do seven miles along it and then up to the cliffs home.

Dawn on the rocks

Fields and cliffs and fields … and a road

Tide was in so a bit of gamboling (Just wanted to use the word) in the cool breeze through the Welsh countryside and up along the clifftops. Plus a quick visit to see the folks!  5 miles at a steady pace ramping up to 7.30 miles as I was ticking along on the roads to incorporate the parents house. Legs feeling rather good at the moment. Perhaps form is coming back at the right time!
