Run (in the) forest, run

I took Ern and Pedwar with me for a short recovery run in Flaxley woods. At 9k and fifty minutes it was just about right except, perhaps, for the 1,000 feet of ascent - I'm not sure a recovery run should have quite that amount. Come to think of it, I'm not sure one should push on the hills either. Oh well.

The sun shone and the deadly duo lagged far, far behind. I had to keep stopping and yelling for Ernie to catch up but eventually we made it back home. I feel a little bit knackered now and in definite need of some refueling.

Only five days till Helen's Cribyn Race [grimaces to camera]...
