Last run before Ben Nevis

I wanted to go for a run but nothing too strenuous as we are running the Ben Nevis Race on Saturday.

I popped down to the Wrekin and had a quick blast up to the top. I thought I'd do this bit as fast as I could as the last few times I've been there I had been running for endurance rather than speed and wondered what I could do it in. 16:58. I was pleased with the time. Only 20 seconds slower than my best ever time.
After that I slowed it right down. Jogging down the opposite side and around the southern side trying to get my technique right.

In total I was out for just over an hour. Really pleasant trail run on a nice summers day. Probably not many of those left this year.


  1. Have a good one.
    All the best

  2. Hey John - good luck for Saturday. I was out doing a recce for the Stretton Skyline, but at recovery pace would have been timed out (twice) :-(. Anyway, have a great time at the weekend. Jim

  3. Good luck John - looking forward to hearing how you get on. Enjoy the trip!
