Apologies to Muddy if we confused you - smallest child had a wardrobe malfunction meaning she was soaking. It turns out that waterproofs are only waterproof if you bother to pull them down over the wellies before letting them puddle stomp. Who knew?! I had change of clothes but her wellies were soaking on the inside and I didn't want to make her hang around with wet feet in the cold for two hours. So we just went home. I hope the organisers aren't dredging the river for us. How did you get on, Muddy?
Well done on your ludicrous race, Lit. What's the real race?
Been a quiet week on the running front in that I haven't done any at all on account of first norovirus and then the previous cough/cold, emboldened by the noroviruses suppression of my immune system, has settled nicely on my chest. Plus one or the other of the kids have been ill for the entire week. Mucho rubbishness. However, I am down to do Coombe 8 in an ambitious reprisal of last year where I also did it with a stinking cold and came tenth somehow or other. I might try a little run in the morning and then see.
Oooh, a stream! I like the ones with water features. I don't think that's a venue for us this time though - we've got Stratford, Warwick Uni, Newbold again (for County Champs) and Wolverhampton (again!). Stratford will be tough I reckon - it's at Wellcombe Hills country park which is hilly, unsurprisingly.
