So many runs …

So few posts! Feels like theyt’re coming thick and fast again so im behind!  I went to the east as I hit the beach this time for variation. Another seven miler in beautiful autumn sunshine.  Legs and foot improving all the time touch wood!

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!

Wind sprints & leg wobbles

I’m caught up! Kinda – So this was thursday!

4 miles along the beach followed by some more hill work (4 not 6 this time as I’d already done a longer run) so plenty of leg wobbling!  The wind was giving it a good blow and made for some interesting training, wet sand and a headwind equal muscle tiredness.

Always beautiful

The wind was making cool swirling patterns in the sand which I’ve completely failed to capture here but you get the idea I’m sure

Sea being chopped up by the wind – did I mention it was windy?

Valley of the wasps!

On tuesday I rolled down to the beach and the tide was in so I decided to do some hill work either side of the Cwm. I actually managed 3 repeats of 2 hills which doesnt sound much but they are hell steep, by the end I was spent and the legs were distinctly wobbly so I skittered like bambi on acid all the way home.  It’ll all be worth it next time I’m on a hilly course – thats what im telling myself anyway.

On the beginning of the right hand side climb wasps have colonised around 15 feet of the pathway, building nests with small entrances – It makes it a mad dash through so you dont get waspsaulted. Little buggers! Never seen them do this here before.

Spot the wasp!

The views from the top of the cliffs when you get there are always worth it, just takes a while before it all comes back into focus to appreciate it.

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!
