"BRECA BUTTERMERE is an epic Swimrun race across some of the UK's most stunning and rugged wilderness - the Western Fells of the Lake District. Over 17 consecutive legs, teams of two will complete a total of 6km of lake swimming and 38km of trail running, including 1,900m of vertical ascent and the infamous Honister Pass."
I need to get practicing swimming with my trainers on and running whilst wearing a wetsuit. How cool is that?
Excellent mileage being totted up. Very low count for me and not worthy of posting. Had a lovely swim up river to the lower reaches of Windermere and back last night - just shy of 2 miles and very pleasant. I will venture out on foot again later this evening to keep the legs moving.
Easy run this morning in heavy rain with the pooch. Effortless gliding along the road for the first 400m at 6:45 pace, felt the achilles protest a little bit so eased right off for a jog around the field for 20mins. Felt a low level niggle the whole way round but not unexpected. Thoroughly enjoyable and soaked through thanks to the delightful Cumbrian summer weather.
