Squeezed an 8m run in between work and overtime yesterday. This was the first run in a very long time that I've actually enjoyed. There was no pressure to run a certain time or ascent. Just run from home to meet Jane at Bestwood then a steady pace though ancient woodland and old spoil heaps.
We're off on holiday again later this week. I'm quickly running out of annual leave but I'll worry about that when it happens! We're planning to walk (there may be some jogging) the Highland High Way. With the West Highland Way being our bad weather/blister plan B.
Whilst I happily come up with the big ideas for adventure, Jane is all about the detail. She's been planner extraordinaire behind this excursion and has been researching routes and kit lists for months. I'm eternally grateful for her patients and thoroughness. She's even got a spreadsheet detailing the calorie to weight ratio of our chosen food. So, Chris, you'd better watch out, I'll never lose at calorie top trumps again!!
