I,ll never look at marathon runners or Xcountry runners in the same way again. Went out on Thursday for my first run around the peak district, I didnt break any records on my 21 mile run, I did it in 4 hours 27 minutes.
I could not run up all the hills but that means i will improve. I was however impressed with my body I never once had to tell it to run, it automatically ran as soon as it could.
I found that deep bogs caused a few swear words but other than that it was fantastic and time flew by. I learnt so many lessons like if you stop concentrating for a split second you trip over lol, and its always the same ankle that lands funny.
What an experiance I cant wait for my next trip.
