After having a few weeks of touring and sightseeing but no training I thought it was long over due to hit the road. Not that I didn’t walk in Edinburgh because I did. In fact after walking my sister in law back to her hotel, I managed to get myself lost trying to find an interesting way back to my hotel.
A few days later we took the ferry over to Ireland and drove up to North Ireland to stay with some good friends. I have never really done any of the sights there and since the weather was wonderful it seemed a shame not to. We were to Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge and the Giant Causeway. Quite a bit of walking.
Being back in Shropshire this week and putting off doing any walking with loads of excuses of housework, gardening and whatever else I could come up with, I forced myself out this morning. Also the weather report calls for rain for the next 2 days and I didn’t really want to soak myself through yet. I am sure that will come sooner than later.
Trying to find the path was the hardest thing today. Middle of the Summer and everything is growing like crazy. Locating the Shropshire Way signs were not always easy either.
I didn’t miss this one!All in all, I did about 10 1/2 miles today and managed to get home just in time to get the laundry in before the rain came. Depending on the weather tomorrow, I will see if I can get out again.
