Week c/20th June – Training

50 days to Elbrus Expedition

I was pretty excited about this week because I am travelling to the North of Spain to a region called Galicia and to the town of La Coruña.

A Coruña is a city and municipality of Galicia, Spain. It is the second-largest city in the autonomous community and seventeenth overall in the country, etc. but the reality is like being in Ireland. The same weather, very similar terrain and coast line and a very Celtic influence in their people. I love this place.

In the old town there is a small mountain shop (Cume Norte) – the owner (Pepe as well) is a great lad and know the area pretty well – so if you are around and want info just pop in for a chat with him.

Once the business meetings were out of the way, I borrowed my mate’s Pepe climbing shoes and went for a decent climbing session at the Riazor Stadium.

The following day I went for an early run by the sea and surrounding the peninsula where the Torre de Hercules lighthouse was built by the Romans. Simply the perfect place for your runs.
