Today I decided to explore as far as Hackbridge - the park there is
really nice. Then I popped into Wilderness Island (a little nature
reserve off the Wandle which only has one entrance so there's no way
through, just in and around and back the way you came) on the way back
was curious. It's mostly trees and narrow trails and I had to slow right
down as I didn't want to roll my damn ankle again on the tree roots.
back via Mitcham Common. That common is so confusing due to the fact
it's in sections due to the roads that go through it, and one section
looks much like another. Went the
wrong way again but at least I knew where I was from the last time I
went the wrong way. Had to take it easy through the common, too,
as it's bloody lumpy and quite hard to run on in places. Pace picked up
once I got back on pavements again but the last few miles felt pretty
laboured. It was getting warmer so I was thankful there was actually a
breeze as I was going up
Streatham Hill.Anyway, that brings me to 52 miles for the week, which is my first 50+ since the groin injury in June. Tomorrow will be a rest - I've booked the gym for 9:30 and will probably do a walk at some point, but no more than three miles.
Hazelnut,after reading your post about your cat I couldn't get the song smelly cat from Friends out of my head!Great 16 miles,hope your run of trips come to an end.Going to be slightly cooler this week with thundery showers.
Well done on your 50 plus week Cal.I was driving to work as you embarked on your 16 miles.Hope all of your niggles are behaving themselves.
A very easy 5 miles Friday.Saturday was supposed to be a trail run along the river but after less than 2 miles my left knee gave out a loud crack,so I gently jogged back home.My knee was swollen yesterday but much better today,so I'll try and get out after work.
The Snowdonia HM has been pushed back to December,so hopefully it will go ahead now.
