Easy 10 miles this morning, 8 with viewtube Run England group. Evo and Chris racing at Greenwich 10K [Chris got another placing today at 3rd].
Another relaxed week next week before we start our Autumn training for real.
We were chatting today as we jogged along about ‘peak bagging’ type endeavours and running [related to parkrun tourism initially, and how it got you to see places you would probably never go otherwise] and I mentioned some adventures I thought might be fun:
- Remotest spot in UK.
- Place farthest from the sea.
- Centre of UK [disputed locations].
- Extreme points; North, South, East, West.
- Wettest/driest places.
- The highest point in each county/borough.
- Farthest phone box from population.
- Trig point bagging.
The fun and games you can create are endless; no idea how anyone can say running is boring? The thing that fascinates me is that some of these geographical markers are denoted by actual measurements [wettest/lowest/farthest] whilst some are almost arbitrary; based on past politics/history [boundaries of counties].
