Black Rocks, Run and play

Since the New Year, I have been trying to string some training together. Not quite a formal training plan but I would like to be fit enough, for this years Great Lakeland 3Day . The idea being to be fit enough to enjoy it and not to, just suffer for three days.

The plan for my Saturday morning run, was to head up to Black Rocks for a couple of laps around the trail and to do a bit of easy; scrambling/ bouldering.

unfortunately half way around the first lap, this happened.
Strangely, apart from being a bit lopsided and having no grip on my left foot. It was quite pleasant. Even scrambling up the rocks wasn't a problem as smearing with a sock, works OK on gritstone.

  1. I had a pair of blue and yellow PB's fall apart last year Steve. I'm using a pair of the heavier uppered black and yellow ones now and they seem much better

  2. Thanks for that DT.
    They did have a hard life. Shame they didn't last the usual; Racing, training, dog walking, gardening, carpet slipper cycle.

  3. You have shattered from running shoes!
