Really, I should have known I was overdoing it.
Not this morning, no, when I just had a nice little walk around the park and had a cup of tea, 5km or so of trundling, radio in my ear. Home for a salad lunch.
What had been planned for a walk out to Coddington, ended up being a run out there, stiff legs and all. WEll as I write this I'm even stiffer now, and my groin has gone as well now after the 10km run.
But it was worth it, I visited the church, the windmill, some lovely little cottages still covered in flowers, and when I got home to Newark bees were on the lavender still. There is an old sort of moated construction you can still see the remnants of I would love to track down - a protected monastery / manor with stewponds that sadly is on inaccessible private land.
Oxton camp, a bronze age site is accessible and I'd love to visit that this week!
Enjoy some pics.
