training (16.5 mile) Berwick - Holy Island
Long run day again. My long runs are going to be done on trail terrain, I've been looking on the web and most endurance and ultra events are done on trails so it makes sense that if this is my thing to do my main runs of the week on trails and i enjoy trails more than the road but shorter faster runs will still be carried out on the roads and i believe cutting road out completely would be a mistake. I bought some black New Balance MT572 trail shoes a couple of months ago but never used them until today and i have to say they are just as good as my new road shoes also New Balance not one problem from either of them. The run starts by a path going through three fields then an half a mile to a mile stretch of country road then back on the trails through to Holy Island the sign is a bit alarming lol. the run was absolutely great enjoyed every second of it even the boggy marsh land within half of mile to Lindsfarne causeway and the views were amazing coastal sand dunes and the sea and cliffs on one side of me and the country side and moorland on the other side. Unfortunately you cant see Holy Island due to the thick mist here today but next time i go i will take a picture to post. thanks all for reading.
