Winter Hill Recovery Run 13/09/2010

The road up Winter Hill

The day after the Stretton Skyline I was working in Warrington, so when I finished I went over to Horwich for a little recovery run up Winter Hill.

This was a very gentle 4.3 mile jog in 0:58:30 including some pretty boggy bits around the main radio mast - access shut off because of overhead work. Stopped to take a few pics on the phone so actual jogging time more likely around 0:53:00 or 12:20 miles - a nice slow recovery pace! Even so I was stiff after the drive back down the M6 and A519.

Rivington Pike from the road - a fell race with a history is Rivington!
