An accidental trek
Dan's solo training #2, Sunday 23rd Jan:
Somehow a planned nice countryside loop, starting from our front door and taking in a decent pub or two, ended up being a 15-mile hardcore training hike that took around five and a half hours. And the pub was closed. It felt like a very long way and it's still only around a quarter of the Trailwalker distance.
The good news is that no long-term injuries were sustained, and we didn't have to call out the St Bernards. We even managed to resist the siren call of the two Gurkha restaurants on the way back through Winchester. On balance, promising. Although, seriously guys, 66 miles?!
