15C, low cloud, rain, mild. A 6 mile run from Fox House. Training plan called for a 6 mile moderate effort run, and instead of RV I decided to keep my trail fitness and do it in the Peak District. From Fox House I ran along Burbage Edge, then along to Higger Tor and Mother Cap, crossing the road and returning along Burbage Brook.
It was raining as I got out of the car. Had a chewy gel and set off. The route along Burbage Edge was familiar, very boggy underfoot. Had a few bites of Chia Charge flapjack along the way, lovely.
The rain eased off heading towards Higger Tor, then I seemed to get slightly lost but was heading in the right direction, just not a brilliant path to follow.
After Mother Cap and for the last mile the rain returned and was heavy, but it didn’t dampen my enjoyment. Drank 150ml water.
Stats are irrelevant today, put in effort on the climbs and throughout but paused for photos and for phone maps / GPS.
