Knowing that I'm going to step back from swim training I decided to stretch myself a little more on today's run. Even though I was well on the way at 07:30 it soon became quite hot and Porter Clough was especially airless- as it always is!
I went up onto Stanage Edge, being very careful on the rocks. It was amazingly dry with a great panorama onto the Dark Peak.
I went down Burbage valley and then over to Houndkirk Road for the journey home. I must confess that some walking took place and the overall pace was very modest. Perhaps it was very well paced really as I've not run much over 20km in a long time and it the weather was rather warm. A good long slow run.
