Recovery run #4 - Whernside from Ribblehead - Saturday 29th August

After trying to carry on with my running, but continually feeling crap, I finally decided to give it all a rest for a week or so following an evening run on 18th August. I also saw the doctors again in the interim and we decided to ditch taking anti-inflammatories altogether and just stick with the daily antacid tablet. So, after a ten day rest up, I tried once more to get my running kicked off again. To be fair I was now feeling a lot better but, all the same, taking just a slow trot up Whernside did feel a bit nerve racking at the start. 

Anyway, the run went really well and, although Hester and the dogs zoomed off ahead as we got near to the summit, I just felt really glad to be up there and running. Maybe not the end of my troubles but it felt like a huge step in the right direction.
