The last few weeks I have had the opportunity to get some long runs in and so I am inspired to keep track of the miles as a reference for post race analysis. The actual mileage I will post in a table on another page. The last two days have been rest days.
One of my favourite runs at the moment is along the Bristol and Bath Railway Path – a step back into the past and a beautiful exit route from the city. The route gives me about 16 miles or so to Bath. Part of the route has been restored as a working museum and 3 miles or so of track extend before and after Bitton Railway station. On Sunday the train was running up and down the line with clean shiny locomotives puffing steam and smoke in the cool air.
