With less than four weeks to go until the Three Peaks, me and Gav thought it was about time to put some serious training in.
Following a couple of laps of Otley Chevin last Sunday and a wet 10 miler to Garforth on Wednesday (see after picture - right), we planned a new circuit around Temple Newsam with plenty of hills to test the legs and stamina. 16 miles later, we were both pretty knackered (I needed an hour's kip in the afternoon to recover) but by the end of it we felt like we were on the right track (and only 7 miles short of 3 Peaks distance).
We also clocked the first half-marathon in 1 hour 45 minutes which, if we could keep the same pace in the Yorkshireman, would see us in the top 2 going on last year's results.
A big thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far, we are already on over £120 plus gift aid in the first week!
