    If anyone wants to camp overnight there is a very nice little spot about 3 miles from the Roaches on the Buxton Rd -

    I've stayed there a few times and the owner is very pleasant. He let me leave my tent up to dry out for 3 extra days free of charge. Alternatively, there is a campsite under Hen Cloud which is very basic indeed - just a field. Water and supplies can be obtained from the farm down the road.

    Mine too Miko. Running today, energy levels low, had to stop, twice! 3 miles in half an hour. I'm ashamed.

    You're out and doing it that's the main thing. Speed is for whippets - Tortoise and Hare and all that!

    True Miko. I shouldn't have run yesterday. I'm better when I run on alternate days and not every day as I sometimes think I have. I also need to listen to what my body tells me and stop putting pressure on myself to perform. I think it stems from feelings of guilt over not having a job. When exercise turns into a job its time to stop.

    Looking for a job is hard enough M but don't ever give up - I use my run time for think time to clear my head of crap and focus on what is important to me at the time. Sometimes I think I can run the world, sometimes I can't run a mile. I pulled a tendon the week before the Kielder marathon and had to drop out - I shouldn't have even been running 5 miles let alone 15!! I always believe that everything is happening for a positive reason though, and sure enough so far it has. Peace, Love and Happiness! See you soon, Miko
