We went swimming again. Then we had fish and chips for tea. A great weekend.
I’ve spent many rainy summers in Snowdonia so I still can’t get over the shock of a few sunny days camping. We stayed on Shell Island and did the downhill mountain biking at Blaenau Ffestiniog, which was scary but great fun. I now have a renewed love for Wales and can’t wait to get back and walk up some of the hills.
I went to Mearley Clough on Tuesday, which is a wonderful fell race up the other side of Pendle Hill.
A sunny night, beautiful scenery, a very steep climb and free pasta in the pub afterwards all contributed to a great evening.
I ran round with a friend from running club and another friend who was doing her first fell race so we had good fun and I managed to take a few photos. My friend Sam loved it and even got a spot prize for doing her first race. Hopefully she’ll be back for some more.
Yay. I did a race. It’s been a while.
The wonderful Anni Waltz.
It was hard. I’m not sure of my time cause I forgot to switch strava off but I fear it might be a PW.
Obviously I should have done it last year. I didn’t realise. No wonder my running yin and yang has been disturbed.
But it’s good to race and try hard…ish. Isn’t it?
I ran a great line of Dale head but then decided this wasn’t good because all the people I had gone quicker than came past me on the climb up High Spy.
Anyway, it was the usual fabulous event that rounded off some lovely camping days in the lakes.
I just need to keep racing now
We’ve had some lovely spring days the last couple of weekends.
I’ve been on the moors again. Looking for paths.
