Back to the regular morning run today. Wet and muddy but still enjoyable, and I never tire of the views on the way round, especially from the higher ground.

Erddig parkrun again for me this morning in 25m19s. Can't really get anything approaching my pb of 23m02s at Shrewsbury parkrun as there are too many congestion points on the first 1.5 miles at Erddig parkrun. I do love running at Erddig though as it's mostly trails and doesn't punish my leg joints like tarmac.

Cold out this morning on my regular route but good to be out. Wish I'd taken a camera with me though as the views from the top of the allt were truly stunning. Sun rising over pinky orange topped puddles of mist in the valley.

Good parkrun at Erddig near Wrecsam last Saturday. Lots there, nearly 290 runners. I was the first one running with a dog to finish in 43rd place. Still didn't beat my pb for Erddig though....

Great stuff SG. You did better than me then.

Work and end of year accounts getting in the way currently, but hoping to get out with Mabel the lurcher tomorrow morning, with a friend and her two dogs. Be a slow one probably as she's recovering from a bout of pneumonia!

Do you use Strava to track your runs?

No, I used to use map my run. But I got fed up lugging my phone around. Basically I have two loops from my house. Both around the 5 and a bit mile mark.

Know what you mean about the phone. I sniped a Garmin 110 for the grand price of 18 posted on ebay. Much better solution, lot less faffing about. I miss having the phone now though for the camera! I'll probably end up with a bumbag on again to carry the phone, especially on social runs.

First run since last Wednesday and not too shoddy a time, although looking at past runs on this route, I have one which is a whole minute faster. I have some work to do!

That's a bit of a climb right off the bat.
