Back in the game!
Well, the karmic influence of all those wonderful messages, plus a stern talking to by Coach Diana, got my sorry body out of bed at 4am, & onto the start line by 6am. The cold, lashing rain was a delightful touch!
At least I could run again today, albeit very slowly. Doubling up on anti-inflammatories (Vitamin I - sorry, kidneys) seemed to help. A relatively 'short' but very hilly 40 miles took me ages to complete, but at least some progress.
Just before the finish, we crossed a huge, wide open field. There, right by the road, was an old disused East/West checkpoint tower. Quite a spooky bit of history.
Back to 50 miles tomorrow - fingers crossed stilll.
