Top that off with heading out mid-morning today with Elsie for a ramble through the area with a local walking group and my legs are ACHING. We put down approximately 9 miles in just over four hours--there was a pub stop, hence the longer time. Most of the route I'd already explored while running but it was a welcome change getting to traverse it with people who knew the history of the area. Elsie was a huge hit, she was loving all the extra attention and at the end when the group was continuing on she kept pulling on her lead to go back to them when I cut off to take a shortcut back home. Kind of fun being one of the two youngest in a group as well, lol.
