Gosh I ache today! 15 miles is a long way when you're not properly trained... and I'm COVERED in insect bites, urgh. Don't need to be up this early but just couldn't stay in bed, far too itchy!
Lovely day yesterday though,and lovely to see XB of course, who I think also had a nice day At 9ish miles we went up a giant hill and passed a woman crying with her family, daughter was saying 'do you want to give up? It's ok to give up!' And she was just sobbing... XB is such a gallant gent and suggested we pick her up (metaphorically of course) and bring her with us (after all, we couldn't possibly have ben going any slower... )
So we said if she wanted to finish she could come with us and we wouldn't leave her, there were only 4 miles left, and she did, which was nice, and we walked and plodded a bit, and tried to catch up XB amd my sister at each stage (sister had to wait at each stage anyway as we were running as a pair and I had the electronic dibber ) Crying woman finished just ahead of me, with er daughter joining her over the finish line, and cried some more
So a jolly good day out Knee feels like a bag of broken lego but I'm sure it'll mend itself. At a work event all day so I'm going to walk into town to get it moving a bit, but then not much dashing around after that hopefully.
you daft lot not doing a mad adventure race, it's that round Sheffield timed stages thing where you have to tag in and out of different sections and get big legitimate walk breaks it's just been raining rather a lot round here and much of yesterday was torrential downpours...
Raft won't be much use anyway as quite a lot of it is uphill!

Sorry,thought I'd said where I was going but clearly not - I'm in Bergen (Norway) very exciting. Sadly weather is dire but then i'm (apparently) here to work not laze around so probably a good thing! Had 6 hr train trip through the mountains yesterday, most fun! Although that's a long time on one train when you've forgotten yer knitting...
No decent tea yet, bleurgh. And I could do with an early night and a lie in but it seems no chance of either! Yesterday was out for 16 hours using mamy different forms of transport (plane, train, taxi, taxi, train, super-epic-long-train, bus). Exhausted now and have to leap out of bed anf get on the flybussen! Hard life. Breakfast first
