A walk?

Yes, we went for a walk - and we really didn't run at all - amazing. It was a bit claggy up top, over in the Black Mountains but it wasn't at all unpleasant. What was amazing was that there were almost no signs of life other than Pedwar and Brown Dog - and I'm not sure Pedwar really counts [puts on body armour]. Although we did spot a few people after a couple of hours, I can't help thinking it was their loss that there weren't more people out.

Anyway, we walked about 21 km and ascended somewhere in the region of 3,000 feet recceing some of the route of the Black Mountains race (coming in a few weeks) but we failed miserably in the mist to find the most direct route down into the first valley - doh. We did recce in reverse from the bottom to the top though, and worked out where we should have gone down - stop it.

All in all it was a right nice day and even though we walked I'm feeling pretty tired now...
