Ok, I'm used to running on roads in hilly areas, and I have dabbled with a bit of off-road/made-up track running, but today I took the plunge and ran on Dartmoor proper!! The Mrs and I took the hound out last night to recce a route (and ended up with a late afternoon to dusk walk - which was simply stunning), and today I dropped me son-and-heir off at his school bus-stop and popped back to last night's not-so-secret venue, and ran.
OMG (I think that is the current vernacular amongst the young), I'm SOOOOOO unfit!! It's a totally different ball-game ~ picking a route amongst the rocks and grassy tussocks, trying not to follow gravity and the streams as they head downhill as I struggled upwards. Oh, so different ~ BUT.....it is fantastic, I loved it....try it...
I shall TRY and get better, but I think being rather old I shall face an uphill (excuse the pun) struggle.
Wish me luck!!
