12C, cool, misty and drizzly. A 6 mile run, aiming to learn about the Blacka Moor route ahead of the race on 20/6. Started on Penny Lane and headed along the route, uphill of course. Found the second hill a bit steep, and got my turning wrong. Ended up going anti-clockwise around the loop rather than clockwise. At least I’ve seen the route now though. This meant I did the long and very steep downhill as a strong walk uphill, and given the damp weather I probably avoided breaking my neck doing it this way round.
On Totley Moor I could see a turn on my map/phone but it took me a few mins to find it in the low cloud. Yikes, lost on the moors!
Enjoyed the run and even in the misty murk parts of it were familiar from the Totley Moor race. Will have a go sometime running it clockwise, so I’m ready for the race. A couple of good hill workouts in this run.
