Training Walk – The Brecons Circuit

Three months ago I was on crutches. Two months ago I was still in a boot.

I’ve just returned from a week away in Wales with the family where we had an amazing time exploring ‘Gods Country’ and all the family activities it offers…I also squeezed in a training walk in the Brecon Beacons.

When I say squeezed, I mean 7 hours and 16 or so miles!

Despite the spectacular weather and exquisite views, it was hard, damned hard! That said I really enjoyed the ups, downs and occasional scrambling apart from one hill, one hill half way round nearly broke me.

I’m already planning another visit out there in a couple of weeks but just to the “three peaks” (Corn Du, Pen-Y-Fan and Cribyn); if anyone wants to come along I’d love the company!

A few photos from the hike (sorry for the glum expression, I’d just climbed some fairly steep inclines and was a little tired!) –
