>A little bit further

>Another day, another small milestone.

Despite being full of cold, having a unshakeable cough and my knee still being sore from the previous weekends climbing i managed my longest run to date – around 12km.

I’ll be honest, at times it hurt like hell, but I told myself that with nothing physically wrong, any pain could only be post-op soreness or some other minor irritant. I thought of Joss Naylor and his lifelong battle with back-pain as I began the pull onto the tops of the Fell above Gurnal Dubs with my knee throbbing. Amazingly whilst it didnt go away, the run didnt seem to make it any worse, certainly in the aftermath so we’ll just keep moving forwards.

I remain on target to run the complete circuit up and over Potter Fell by Christmas.
