The weather in the Peak District has not been good for running this week.
Strong winds and heavy rain combined with a niggling injury has seen me reduced to walking and practising my map & compass skills. After almost a week off running I was itching to get out and a “suckers gap” in the weather on Friday gave the opportunity I was waiting for.
I’d mentioned seeing deer on Big Moor so 3 of us decided to run a White Edge, Curbar, Froggatt loop hoping to catch a glimpse.
The recent heavy rain meant that muddy shoes and wet feet were the order of the day but this was a small price to pay for the light winds and blue skies, so welcome after a grim, grey week.
