Training Walk 05.05.12

I was going to do another 16 miler this weekend, but realised at lunchtime that Helen was going to a 'do' tomorrow and so I decided to get myself out this afternoon and pound some grass!

Thornton Reservoir today, just under 10 miles in less than 4 hours.  Round the reservoir, across the fields towards Ratby, back up through the golf course, up to Bagworth and back round to Thornton.

Not sure what was nesting?
'anglers' backcasts' oo-er madam, sounds a bit rude! "Oooof! Mind me anglers' backcasts!"


The waterfall - this one's for Lachlan

It was a good walk, and I only got rained on once at the start, and pretty soon dried off.  Made good time with a few ups and downs.  It was quite busy round the reservoir and it must be a popular place to walk.

Check out the route here.

Good tunes on the MP3 player today included 'The Riddle' by Nik Kershaw, 'A Little respect' by Erasure and 'iPM' on  Radio 4.

The tune played on the Ukulele tonight was a slow version of 'Hot Tamales'.
