Finally made it out for a run this afternoon. Just ran my 3.5 mile loop over the allt and through the woods.

Forgot to start the Garmin going for the first 500 yards and then stopped a short way along the trail to clear a culvert that had flooded the path.

It was very hard work up the side of the allt too, after a week of not running but I feel much better for having got out there. Arrived back home just before it started to rain again.

Managed to get out for my lunch run today, sunny but fresh. Plenty of mud too.

Plenty of mud and a lot of water here too atm, makes running quite hard going in places.

Need to get a couple of longer runs in this week ready for a 10k event I have coming up on Sunday. This is a great little event I do every year, really well organized and can cross friendly, with a great atmosphere.

Out for a late afternoon run, much easier now with the evenings starting to get lighter. A run of 6.9 miles out along the river to the next village and back through the woodland at our end.

Very pleased with the pace; under 9 minutes a mile which is pretty good for me on these muddy trails. Mind you, I didn't go up the steep side of the allt this time. That's for later in the week!

Out early for my last run before the event at Myddle on Sunday. Just under 8 miles over the allt, along the river to Pontllogel and back, and then through the forest back to the village.

Good run and not too muddy now. Felt like hard work on the outward leg, mostly because it starts with a bit of a steep climb up the side of the allt, but got into the stride of it by the end of the outward section.

Now for a cup of tea and a large bowl of porridge!
