Hardly AC - Dodd

David, Jonathan and Alastair (I think) on top of Dodd

A bit of last minute organisation and we managed to get a group of seven together for an evening run around Dodd at Bassenthwaite.

The first mile is uphill and it's a test of pacing - all about getting into the slow uphill rhythm.

It levels out for a bit before winding up to Dodd summit.

What goes up, must come down and, after an initially steep descent, the gradient becomes much mellower and breezy as you sail downhill for a couple of miles.

Four and a half miles but including a good hill test.  This is a great, easy to follow, winter route on good ground.

Good to get out on a dark cold night.  Ideal running conditions if you ask me.
