Winter Hill – 09 July

During the last couple of weeks I have started cycling again – nothing ambitious and on an off-road bike, mainly as a way of recovering without any impact on my knee. The initial results seem encouraging and my knee is better than it has been for very many months. My Dad has been staying for a few days which meant getting out when I could and doing whatever could be fitted in. By Thursday I felt ready to try Winter Hill from home, again, for the first time in months I felt it could be do-able at the end of a week’s running rather than at the beginning. The weather was encouraging too and with an early start meant I reached the Trig Point just after 7 o’clock to enjoy the early morning sunshine.

On returning home I was delighted to find I had run 50 miles in the week for the first time in over a year – it almost seems like progress.
