It was a really cold morning on Sunday when I told Badger to get in the van to go for a run. He looked a bit put out.
I nipped up to do the Lambs Longer Leg Race that starts just down from the Lamb Inn Pub on the road to Hayfield.
Not much distance in this one but the climb goes on a bit and its a good route. I had not ran the race or the route for a few years and to be honest on the way back to the finish I nearly went wrong. My teammate Muir Morton shouted me the directions and I suddenly realised which way to go.
Pennine had a great turnout taking quite a few prizes.
I just managed 3rd which I was pleased about as I had fallen on the ice half way round the race.
Just a simple little race but a classic.
On the way home we stopped at Shining Cliffs and did three laps of the woods. Badger really made me pay for not allowing him to run the race earlier.
Ive learnt that by doing a nice steady recovery run the same day as a race helps your legs becoming stiff.
Just to prove the point, Badger and I did 16miles last night and my legs were fine. Only a day after.
