Combe Hill Woods- Marathon Training in the Gorgeous Somerset Countryside

18 Sep

I am back in Marathon Training again.  I have entered the Paris Marathon that is in April 2016.  After completing the London Marathon earlier this year I had said that it was a one off.  But after a summer of not doing a lot, well except for working very hard here at Middlewick with the busiest summer yet, I have decided I missed the training.  Actually not the training part, the getting sweaty, aching muscles and feeling tired is not fun, but what I had missed was the exploring of countryside while I put the miles in.  I enjoyed seeing some of the most beautiful parts of Somerset and enjoying the views as I plodded along.

So my run today was around Combe Hill Woods, a 45 Hectare woodland just a few miles from us here in Glastonbury.  The trails are fantastic and the views across the countryside are stunning.  And of course it is very dog friendly so my running companions Maggie and Ellie came along as well.
