    Since London I have taken pretty much 3 weeks off running and have instead been swimming and climbing. I spent the weekend, just gone, in the Peak District climbing and it was very enjoyable and also a good chance to use muscles that are never used when running.  This week I am going to get back to running but have decided to take it very slowly, so yesterday was a walk then 10 mins run and then walk back. Today I am swimming and then tomorrow again a 10 mins run.

    On Sunday I am going to join a coached swimming session for the first time, so I am a little nervous, but it should be good. If I do not feel like going I shall remember all the swimming lessons I have made my children do when they did not want to.

    • crooxi ' Whereabouts in the Peak District? This climb (on Rivelin Edge) is named after my father, who was the first to climb it. There are also some of his at Wharncliffe Crags. I never took to climbing, though - too chicken!' added 21st May 2015

    • hfry 'crooxi , wow that is really interesting, a VS is a bit too hard for me. We were at Stanage and Froggatt . I really enjoy climbing and you get to see some great countryside. I shall look out for your fathers name. It is nice to know a story behind a climb ' added 22nd May 2015
