spiderman wrote:Good day out with two hills in the bag and then a new ascent from the initial starting point is a good level of fitness. Your desire to jog down the last hill is a sign that you are really feeling at home in the hills. :? :? But be warned.
now you have got this bug for covering a distance in
the hills with a bit of jogging you will want to do
more of it and who knows where this may lead, you
might end up doing the Tranter Round :lol: :lol:
:lol: I enjoyed your report.


Oi oi Spiderman behave!!!

They were easy hills in pretty good conditions !!!

Cheers Matey!!! X

Another doozie, Polly.
Fair racing through the hills now, AND everyone a mini adventure :lol:
You've also developed a surefire way of attracting the bogg-iness. :lol:
Not sure about maccaroni pie though, fizzy fish mibbee aye, mibbee naw. My default option, jelly babies everytime.
You hanging up your boots and lippy for the winter yet ?

Great report Polly, entertaining as ever and those lovely photos , I was with you in spirit :lol: When I said "here's to your next 50" should have said "150" as you're certainly racing through them :D

Instead of the lip balm, invest in a full on bright pink/red lipstick, that would go very nicely with the "feral" look :thumbup:

I see you're now trying to get extra revenue by advertising Tesco's Finest chocolate; you've given up on the pheasants then??? :lol: XX

Cheers Susie!

I'm always amazed about how groomed some people manage to appear when they're out on the hills!!!

Happy to take any revenue in the form of chocolate :lol:

As for the pheasants only saw one when it came screeching out of a bush right next to me :shock: Sweary words, sweary words!!!!
