Spain is well Spain and a trail runner’s dream. We enjoyed two glorious weeks in the mountains, finding new trails at a slow pace and not impressing the locals with the distances we covered at all!
In most countries, when you say: “Oh I ran 30km yesterday and another 20km today,” you get a nod and a few exclamations (expletives sometimes) and you feel good. Not in Spain, 30km is just 30km and even if the terrain meant it took you over five hours, well that’s nothing and you should try harder 🙂 The local hard core runners would have done 60km.
I was a bit naughty and just went running pretty much every day – neglecting my core and strength work from which I’m now paying the price.
So here are just a few photos from many taken while trekking around our part of this glorious country:
