A slightly different day today since I was on business in Sheffield.
After a quick google for a lunch time run I found Ecclesall Woods – the perfect spot, with marked out runs around woodland and a little cafe for a post run coffee and toasted sandwich!
Off I set feeling good and ready for a chance of scenery and a run through woodland (a big change from my usual runs around here), but little did I know that this wasn’t just any woodland…..this was hilly woodland..!!
Within the first 100m I found myself tackling steps and climbing with an elevation gain of 50m in the first half kilometre.
Me struggling to catch my breath and thinking have a really got another 4.5km to go!
Anyhow, after a while I settled in and took on the ups and downs of the trail.
A satisfying run and one where my new trail shoes would have been perfect. Only one problem….I left them at home!.
Day 3 done. 47 to go!
