A really nice day for it

The sun shone as me and the dog that is brown in colour headed off for a run. I'd picked myself out a new route. After running through Flaxley woods we turned south and swept downhill to the village of Flaxley. Then it was west alongside a small babbling brook before turning north and winding through ancient woodland. Finally we reached Blaisdon wood and picked up one of the normal routes back home. It was a very pleasant nine miles and 1,400 feet of ascent. As is always the case when picking out a new route there were a goodly number of pauses to check the map so the time is a bit irrelevant. Still, it's another new route option to throw into the mix.

Tomorrow we're heading to the mountains...
