Back to Winter Hill, with Pauline, after three weeks and despite the wind and tight legs (from yesterday?) it was really good to be out and enjoying the sunshine and views. Yesterday's blister developed more than I would have liked with peat and Pennine grit ensured a black, bleeding hole in the top of my foot - sorry I have just finished reading Dean Karnazes' "Ultra Marathon Man" which is big on the details of suffering but I'll be over it by tomorrow. Something very gentle tomorrow - an extended warm up essentially - before a massage to improve recovery from these two outings. The Howarth Hobble remains my next target; no longer as measure of winter training rather a long steady training run to measure recovery.
