Bonnie Prince X County and Trig Point - 11th December 2008 -

6.35 am early morning start - really cold, frosty, winter wonderland, from home, down old markeaton street and across markeaton park, onto bonnie prince walk, across ashbourne road and up to trig point off radbourne lane nr water tower.

Last two fields before the trig have been ploughed, and they wer efrozen solid, took a tumble and it was like hitting concrete, battered and bruised, arrived at the trig point,

Dog walker looked at me as if to say " you must be a nutter "! shorts in the dark running!

New Speedcross 2's are teh ideal tool for this weather and terrain. felt really heavy after the weekend, hard under foot, Good solid push up the hill climb from ashbourne road 6 miles - 56min 22 secs - a little slower than usual.
