Although we live surrounded by hills I've mainly avoided going up or downhills with Cybi, mainly as I'm rubbish at descending even without a dog attached to me. But I'm only get better at hills if I do it so out we went today and straight up the hill to Eyam. I count it as running although Cybi decided it was too slow even to trot and walked! The downhills I was just a wimp but I don't think I was any slower than when I used to run without him and it's more fun running with him though and I can always walk the more scary downhills.

I've got really behind with this blog! Back I'm February we went to Norfolk for the week. I had found a cabin nestled in the sand dunes for us to stay in for the week. It was a perfect week, long walks along the beach, pub lunches, seals on the beach and time with Cybi and Ali. We're already planning a return.
The other Wednesday we had lovely weather here so cybi and I parked at Cressbrook and walked over to Tideswell to meet Ali for lunch. I hadn't been along the path between Cressbrook and Litton Mill before but it's stunning, as well as very muddy. You can see that it floods easily, lots of signs warning about this. Then through the lovely Tideswell Dale before picking up sandwiches for lunch with Ali.
On the way back we found one geocache and had one we didn't find. Lovely day and so lucky to live here.
Once again we were at Elland Lodge for two days of racing with Canicross Midlands. After having to carry Cybi across the last water crossing a month ago, he put the brakes on and refused to cross, my aim was to get him to cross it. We've been practising in the stream in. The village, my wading in and tempting cybi in with treats. Well it worked both Saturday and Sunday he went through, I did carry a treat and it was needed to tempt him in but once in he went across, I was so proud of him. On the Sunday we also ran a PB for the course 25:14.4 which was super speedy for me.

Cambridge United were playing Hartlepool today so the three of us headed North. After lunch by the beach, it was very windy with sand flying into our eyes, we dropped Ali near the ground and then I parked by the sea and Cybi and I headed out on a geocaching adventure. The first cache we unfortunately didn't find but after that we started having more luck. Did a nice little circuit and added some more smiley faces to the map.
