I normally only blog about events, but there's been precious few of those happening in the past years, so I guess I have to make my own entertainment! I've spent the last three days running/walking/jogging/shuffling the Leeds Country Way, a just-shy-of-100km lap round the outskirts of the city. This was supposed to be a shake-down for the Great Lakeland 3 Day on the May bank holiday weekend, but it's been postponed until August, so really it was just a way of using up some leave days and seeing how I coped with three solid days on my feet - no rushing, no racing, no major stress, just a way of getting out and about for a while. While the 'stay local' fit was maybe a bit tenuous, I can at least say I didn't leave the city!
Day 1 - Golden Acre to Woodlesford - 37km, 6:23
Day 2 - Woodlesford to Morley, 29km, 6:11
Day 3 - Morley to Golden Acre 31km, 5:28
