START TIME: 13:17 FINISH TIME: 13:55 DISTANCE: 10.1 miles / 16.18km
Not a lot to say about this walk really, except it is getting really difficult to name them. I am going to have to go with the slightly dull, but nevertheless alliterative, Mountnessing March.
The actual route is based on Brentwood Council’s 6.5 mile long Ingatestone & Mountessing Countryside Walk . As I am trying to avoid driving to walks, mine is extended so I can start and finish at home, but technically, the start is at Ingatestone Hall, which has ample parking.
Unfortunately my new Brashers didn’t get a maiden voyage this week. Having run out of ideas of how to clean the centimetre deep Donington mud from my Merrells, I decided to see if I could walk them clean. This wasn’t entirely unsuccessful, and I now feel confident that I won’t have to burn them any time soon.
On a mildly nerdy note, I used Runtastic to record the walk which shows each kilometre marker and gives a table of how quickly I walked them. I haven’t forsaken my Memory Map device, but with very little charge I thought I would use my phone instead.
