Anglezark Amble – 14 February

After virtually no running all winter I was afflicted by the type of madness that seems to affect only fell runners. I hoped I might manage a good 12 miles, I hoped I might reach the gate at 12.5 miles where I tore a calf muscle once but by the Strawberry Duck I was slowing, a little. About halfway Cadshaw Valley it was all over and the long, painful struggle to Darwen Tower, Slipper Lowe, Great Hill and Rivington started. I finished, about all in, but I finished. On Sunday morning my knee is fine, no aches and no other after-effects so I am delighted. I did think about going out for a short, slow “leg stretch” until I tried to walk down stairs. Ah well, plenty of time for that later.
