Day 2, Lake District / training run #1457

18C, started out sunny, clouded over.

Physio allowed me a 60 minute run today but I stretched it a bit to do a recce of part of the Ultimate Trails 55k Race route. Did 11 miles.

Starting in Ambleside not far from the actual start line, it was clearly all uphill at first. Did a run/walk. Went through the first mountain pass on the route, reached 5.5 miles and turned round. Used a bit of road then got on the trail path back to Ambleside, power walking the return to save my Achilles.

This was tough. Can see I’ve missed a lot of training with injury. Heel was ‘ok’, a bit tender so I’ll apply some gel. Brilliant scenery and good to get 3 hours on my feet.

The tarmac turned into rocky trail a bit further on
Someone left me a message on the road, near the top of the pass
