Hilly run with Clare and Adrian (new to MDC and not made it to a Tuesday run yet - don't think we've scared him away!) from Dare Valley Park. Weather was supposed to improve after 9 but it didn't, and it was a day to appreciate not running the OMM!
Legs still recovering from Kymin and XC but also not comfortable on tarmac in these shoes - all the road running on Tuesday may have damaged the cushioning as mid foot feeling every step. They've crossed the 1,000 mile today so I think it's retirement time.
From the park, tried a footpath to the north that didn't fully exist 6 years ago, and it doesn't fully exist now. But we found a way through. Up the hill into the wind and rain was hard, but across into the woods more sheltered. Planned a longer route around the edge to Rhigos but opted out due to wind.
Off the turbine tracks, so nice wet paths, and good springy runnable woods. Knee feeling "tired" towards the end so happy to get back (and just about avoid another torrential downpour - with some running into the cafe for a nice lunch).
Glad to get out and experience hills and proper weather - and good company too. Just would like it to feel a bit easier like it used to!https://www.strava.com/activities/6192078848
Recommend the cafe as well priced with nice food and chips. Skipped the ice cream. Catching up on the latest JK news - feel like it could all be much better co-ordinated as our problems were foreseen *months* ago and now it's looking more likely we'll end up with an unpopular compromise :-( Could be easier for me though - so there might be at least one person smiling at Easter!
