|It’s the middle of the night !!!|
Another early rising found me pounding the streets ( technically a cycle path ) at 04:10 this morning for a four mile walk around the local streets.
During my stroll I saw…
- A few cars
- 2 buses
- 1 dog walker
… well it was still the middle of the night ( or at least it felt like it.)
I thought that I might have been brewing a cold having the snuffles yesterday but was feeling a lot better this morning. Flu Plus and some Vitamin C with my cornflakes should, hopefully, keep the nasties at bay.

Walking around this morning I was thinking about some kit that needs replacing, namely shoes and waterproof trousers. My favourite footwear is my Scarpa trail running shoes but I am having trouble locating a new pair, they may be discontinued. The Brooks Cascadias that I bought with my spot prize last year are second choice and are still available ( £100 on Brooks own site!). Go Outdoors have got some Salomon trail running shoes which look promising ( I wonder if they’ll be having a sale ?! )
Waterproof trousers are a different matter and to be honest I haven’t got a clue. I’ll have to do some research as I’ll need something that is…
- Waterproof ( Obviously )
- Breathable ( I hate getting sweaty ) and
- Lightweight ( I’ve got to carry them )
Any ideas / recommendations ?
