Hot day was forecast but having got back late and generally feeling wiped out I knew joining Running Fource for an early morning ‘long’ was out of the question. Instead the garden wall got the lick of paint owed to it from Thursday and what with other ‘stuff’ to do didn’t emerge over the threshold until 4pm. As promised it was hot but took it very easy and stuck to shaded paths were possible. Route was a good’un – even if I say so myself: Sauncey Wood, Great Cutts Farm, Little Cutts Farm, Peters Green, Bishey Wood, Kimpton Bottom, Blackmore End Mackery End & home. Lots of paths – many of them new to me - or at least seen before but never traversed. Did just over 10 miles in quite a long time: which is fine with me.
