0700 Fine, cool, chilly morning, so I took a tour of a deserted Rimrose Valley Country Park, taking in some of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, then through Potter's Barn Park on my way past the Marina and - inevitably - up the beach.
The hammy? Don't ask. 7.5 miles failed to improve its humour.
Great off-road effort, Dank-art - and not slow, PompeyMatt if it fits with your plans.
Crosby Baths & the Iron Men do often resemble a set looking for a sci-fi series, JT - indeed, an audition request went out only this week for folk with stories of Gormley's installation. Excellent reference, marshallini, and more signs you're getting back to your best.
8pm 1 hr 4 min. beach & trail on a breezy evening with only a few dog walkers & cyclists to share the surroundings. 7.3 miles.
Peaks & troughs here amongst Gormley's ferrous brethren: 0645 saw me heading for prom & seashore, turning at the old coastguard station and running with only a slight squeak from the hammy. A slight nip in the air but fresh, bright & sunny and the dewy grass soon soaked beneath sock level!
