Ilkley Moor

Route: 18m, multi-terrain, Some hills, some flat.
Weather : 24C, Sunny, humid

Great run by road through Burley to Ilkley and then back home across Ilkley Moor and through Menston back to Otley. No knee problems, but I was careful to stretch every 6m or so and took care with any twisting movements on the rocky sections of the moor.

Really hot today and I definitely under-estimated how this would affect my hydration. Finished my fluid reserves with 3 miles still to run, so thanks to The Fox in Menston who filled up my platypus as I was getting rather dehydrated. Legs feel fine after this distance. Just got to stay injury free.
