I wanted more out of this week than 'just' running, and I made this happen.

The plans were set, so even without ideal preparations (a weekend of bad food, booze & late nights), the plan was executed; mostly.The hubster and I parked up at New Mills and joined the Macclesfield Canal and ran 26 miles to Kidsgrove on Monday.
