    Todays run was with a pal, from The Butchers Arms at Reaps Moor. The magnificent sound of Curlews accompanied us over the first few fields to Little Fernyford before the pull up through the heather to the TP at Merryton Low. Down to the Mermaid before more crossing of fields to Lower Green Farm and then up to the TP at Hill House. Steeply down to Upper Elkstone and through a bluebell filled little valley prior to more fields to Moorside Farm. Another short section of heather to reach the third TP at Revidge. A gentle run on track and tarmac back to the Butchers Arms.

    A total of 9 and a half miles and 1,334 feet in a steady 1hr 35min. A lovely sunny day with a cooling breeze and surprisingly only 2 others seen.

    Thursdays RATRun was from the Bulls Head in Youlgreave. Nine of us dropped into Bradford Dale before crossing fields to Gratton, up Gratton Dale and then Long Dale. Out of Long Dale and then down to Middleton and back into Bradford Dale and up to the Bulls Head where bowls of chips were washed down with a couple of pints of Wainwright. Not a favourite but it did the job!

    9 and a half miles and 890feet in 1hr 19min.

    This week a total of 28 miles and 3,355 feet running 39 miles and 3,490 feet walking combined with last weeks totals of 24 miles and 3,858 feet running 28 miles and 4,260 feet walking things are ticking along nicely and the shoulder continues to improve.

    Onwards and upwards!

    First proper run for three weeks, due to my latest calf injury. Just up to the Outwoods, 29 minutes, leaving home at 10:30am to get it done before the rain started in earnest. Slow enough to appreciate the bluebells.

    Hundreds of people out walking in the woods and on the paths to and from them, most of them properly dressed for the forecast conditions.

    A wet, windy and wild run this afternoon from near Chelmorton. Down through fields to Flagg then along the Limestone Way for a mile before a right turn took me up Huttmoor Butts to the A515, which I crossed and then more fields to the HPT. After half a mile another right turn took me back over the 515 to the Duke of York where I picked up the Pennine Bridleway back to my car.

    A total of 6 and a half miles and just 466 feet in 53 minutes. Apart from drivers on the 515 and two Openreach workers in the middle of a field, who seemed to be debating whether or not to climb a telegraph pole in the strong wind, no one else seen!

    Tonight's RATRun was from the Thornbridge Brewery Tap in Bakewell. Eight of us set off in cold wind and rain along the river Wye to Ashford in the Water and then up Pennyunk Lane. As we crossed the fields to Monsal Head we got hit by horizontal hail which gave the legs a good stinging.

    From Monsal Head we dropped steeply to the trail and the shelter of the Headstone Tunnel. When we came out the other side of the tunnel the sun came out and warmed us up a little along the trail. Just before we reached Hassop Station we took a right up the bridleway that led us back over to the Wye and the Brewery Tap.

    On arrival our pre ordered Pizza was waiting and was washed down with excellent Brother Rabbit 4% and Crackendale 5.2%.

    A pleasant run of just over 7 miles and 700 feet in 60 min 34 seconds!
