I suggest we do the Big Hill [aka Truleigh] tomorrow. The are various routes, all of around 13 miles, but it’s good training and the views can be superb. There are shortcuts in case anyone is put off by the distance or the hill. Next week’s run will be shorter [and easier] I promise!
I suggest we do something slightly different on Saturday, which is this route, a favourite of some, and, having run it once, I can understand why. It starts from the A283 layby and the full distance is about 14 miles, although there is a shortcut that can reduce it to 9.
I suggest we do the Tottington run tomorrow morning. It’s flat and only about 10 miles, but that’s probably enough – at least for those involved in last weekend’s exertions!
I did 2 very slow miles on treadmill yesterday evening, but the stitches are out now, so I plan to run tomorrow morning. This route is only about 8 miles, although it can be extended to take in Spithandle Lane, and I may not run the whole way.
Sorry for the delay in posting this, but I have been away on landscaping duties! It was suggested we should a 13 miler tomorrow and this route, part of which we did on Wednesday evening, is not only flat, but also includes a stretch along Spithandle Lane. There are plenty of opportunities for shortcuts through Bines Green and Ashurst or even Lock Farm.
I suggest we do another favourite on Saturday morning – the Monastery Run. It’s about 12 miles, flat and can easily be lengthened or shortened.
Pinch Punch first of the month! I suggest we do the Convent Run on Saturday. It’s flat and about 12 miles, depending on the route, which may include checking out the 2 mile Fun Run that the club is organising on behalf of the Parish Council next month.
Now the weather is cooler longer runs are more feasible on Saturday mornings and this route is just over 12 miles. It also follows much of the half marathon course that can therefore be checked out before the race on Sunday.
I was going to suggest another route across the Turrell bridge on Saturday, but at present that involves crossing the slurry field and I’ve had enough of bathing Mitch! This route via Wappingthorn, where we haven’t run for a while, is about 11 miles, flat and shouldn’t be overgrown…
