Solva round

Out early on the dew sodden paths.  Over the nature reserve and through confusing complexes of farm buildings.
Past the old quarry and around to the back of Carn Pembury, a scab of rock in the heather gorse and backthorn. Then back down to the coast path before climbing again to Carn xx and over a series of more rocky outcrops. 
Past the youth hostel, its occupants outside breakfasting, and a sprint up Carn Llidi with a final scramble up to the highest point of the run. Below the tides raced and the warming landscape steamed and dried out.
An epic run six mile run back with two abortive forrays down choked footpaths. My legs were scratched painfully all over. Bonked badly on the final miles. Snuck into a garden to drink greedily from a hosepipe.
Spent the rest of the day on the beach, cooling legs in the sea.

  1. Summer holiday seaside runs are cool. Even better with a bit of rock.
    Great picture Matt
