Debra - yes, being 90mins from the Lakes would be heavenly! As would being about 30mins from the Peaks -  I don't think i'd ever have time to work....

I'm saying nothing about the southern counties... couldn't tell them apart at all

Has to be said though, I've never really fussed about down south, but running with Loula has shown me how beautiful Oxfordshire is, and then seeing the NDW was fantastic, so looking forward to the runs me and her have planned, and NDW50 2013 - i'm getting excited about that and it's 11 months away...

I'm actually a very good map reader...and will often use a road atlas rather than SatNav as I trust it more...

Essex, Norfolk & Suffolk is easy to me...but then I live on the bit where Norfolk, Cambridgeshire & Lincolnshire meet...

It's been a long while since I've been to Devon/Cornwall - i'd love to go back one day - so many places, so much running, so little time...

My map reading is ok now. Although I so rarely practice it as if I go for a run somewhere new I just go running and figure it out as I go. You can't really get lost, the run just sometimes takes a little longer

I'm never lost - just occasionally temporarily misplaced.....

but you knew you were in the forest right cragchick?! so you can't be lost... in theory being on an island it is not possible for us to be lost as we can confirm our location to one lump of land

getting lost is sometimes kind of nice....you see things you may not have otherwise...discover new routes....

06/09/2012 at 15:08

Exactly Lou, like WiB said, you're never REALLY lost... just sometimes not sure where you are, but you soon work it out...usually by finding somewhere else nice to run...

You didn't seem quite so zen about it when we ended up in Wales that time, Rocker.

06/09/2012 at 15:19

I was happy

I'm just sarcastic

By car or on foot Tiago? How do you accidently go to Wales?

I was once trying to run a route from memory without a map on a Lakeland recce... a few guys ran with me and I made one wrong turn that they followed me on. Unfortunately that wrong turn was across a bridge we shouldn't have crossed haha!!! Kept running for a while before it was pointed out we were on the wrong side of the river... one quick river crossing later and we were all back on track though

To my great regret, I totally lack a sense of direction. I can generally navigate okay e.g. when walking in the Lake District by a combination of compass direction, map and landmarks, but if I get lost all I can do is try to retrace my steps back to where I was not-lost, and try again.

At the moment I'm REALLY REALLY hoping that the route directions for the Dunstable 20 this Sunday will make sense and be easy to follow once I'm on the route...

What day Lirish and how far? I dont know if I am doing the race yet but wouldnt mind a run out on the ridgeway, not been there before.

Back onto the 'What's next?' subject... I am doing an unthinkable double next week. A 5k track race on Wednesday followed by a 10k road/trail race on Sunday. I hope the aid stations are well stocked

WiB

5k? 10k? Is that the gap to the first aid station?

When someone first said 5000m to me I assumed that was vertical gain

In reality its just a couple of speed sessions to throw into my training for the week, would be nice to run them well though.

Wye Valley Marathan for me this weekend, unfortunately a few rubbish things in my life have conspired to ruin any training, but never mind, it's only 26.2, right?

WiB I'm flexible for both days, when would be better for you?
GKD

You okay Tiago?

And yes, it's only 26.2, will be a breeze...
