Demanding 7km road/trail run

Demanding 7km road/trail run

Had a good club run yesterday evening, although quite demanding starting on road with a steep long hill, then off road in the grounds of a private school using their cross-country course in woodland, which is about a circuit, again there were some steep descents as well as ascents, and bumps & hollows in the grass, as seen in the pic, so had to watch out! but in the evening sun glinting through the trees( sounding like old floss now😊) it was a pleasant time, until the other members said then to do the circuit again in reverse, I passed on that! As the backs of my legs were starting to nag! so thought wise not to do it..😰

Surely it would have been dark by the time the reverse runners got back! Think you made the right call.

No, wasn't dark, but they turned back to find me because I gave up on it to protect myself..

It sounds like a beautiful run and what a lovely photograph too. What a super way to spend a balmy evening... (that is balmy with a 'l' not an 'r'. )

Go you xxxx

Looks great. Good call - better to enjoy what you do than push to not enjoying.
