Winter Hill – 12 May

After the extravagance of hills, miles and feet climbed last weekend, from which my legs are just about recovered, I was happy to have a short, gentle jog over Winter Hill this morning. Usually I wouldn’t be all that concerned about tired legs but they were tired on Thursday night, so tired I had to bail out of the run, somewhat ignominiously, after not very many miles and next weekend is the Old County Tops for which they need to be fully recovered.
