    Spring Thing

    I get the same urge every Spring...to get up real early and bang in a very long run from right outside the door. I've got a 19 mile circuit that circumnavigates the town linking all the hills that surround us. Lovely views of the Wye Valley and distant Beacons. Felt really trashed but was pleased to see I averaged 5 mph for the circuit.

    Anyone else get the urge for a Spring Thing?

    Yeah, I tend to go out for a run on Hatterall Ridge late at night/very early morning at full moon in Spring

    Yep Wheeze, I've got the urge to run Vienna Woods Path no. 444. which is part of European Long Distance Path no.4. which I think starts in Spain and goes through Hungary and probably, these days, even beyond.

    I hope to do it all later in the year; just the 50kms Mödling-Grinzing section I mean.

    Re: Spring Thing

    I've had this urge for a couple of years now to run home from work one sunny evening
    Runcorn to South Manchester
    by curious coincidence almost exactly a marathon distance
    I reckon I can combine the Mersey Valley Trail, the Bridgewater Canal and the Bollin Valley Way and it could actually be quite scenic
    maybe this year...

    Re: Spring Thing

    A late reply, Wheeze, but yes I do. Wake up at first light and think I could easily do 2 hours before breakfast. It's often the best part of the day. Must confess though that I then turn over and go back to sleep. Dreadful waste of daylight.
