not a lot of people know this

Shutlingsloe, pictured by me this fine morning from my garden, is known as the Cheshire Matterhorn. Well I certainly didn't know that until today.

Funny that. Because, from the track at lunchtime, where I was banging out 8 x 200's x 2 with my mate Steve 'Speedy' Daniels, guess what you can see..Shutlingsloe. And what can you see from Hollie's school in Macclesfield..and the school Will is going to in Leek next year..and as mentioned from our house..yep, you guessed it.

A nickname well earned..though not a lot of people know it.

You'll have to forgive me...why Shutlingsloe an apt nickname?

Looks like a nice mountain, is it part of your regular running route?

Great pic, it's always nice to learn something you don't know about your area.

Were you 8 x 200 x 2 hill reps up the mountain to get ready for Snowdon ;¬)

Oh, Matterhorn. Got it, der...although the 'sloe' part would be apt for me on uphills right now. Running on essentially a table for the past 5 months.
