Its the first weekend in what seems like a while where I’ve decided to not race. Instead I’d decided to focus on getting some mileage in, and so whilst others were running the Old Counties Tops or the New Dungeon Ghyll races I opted for a relatively benign run over the fells above Patterdale. Heading out from the small car-park at Low Hartsop we headed along the path up and around to Angle Tarn before heading along the Coast Path before dropping down to Hayeswater and returning back to the valley.
Joining me today was Steph and our unstoppable Collie, Seren and so I took advantage of enjoying a slightly steadier pace than whats been the case on recent runs. Reasonable weather this afternoon, glimpes of sunshine in what was otherwise a fairly grey day and not too cold.
