Thanks I have to say I was quite chuffed at completing them, the psychology of completing something hard, makes something even harder seem more manageable ... Those 2 days were the longest of the training, so a medium week next week, then a slight taper till the day.
Yums: its the Stour Valley Path 100k in August, really looking forward to it as its my longest distance so far but with half the ascent of Fridays run which will be a nice change! Hopefully cooler too.
Chuggs: I appreciate your sentiment about not liking me up there alone in that storm I was a bit concerned heading into it, and put some thought into safety measures if it got too hairy, there is little cover, so would have crawled into teh wheat fields and layed down probably, but then would have missed an amaizing light show! Getting off the downs would have not gained much as there seemed to be more strikes on the slopes to each side of me than the top, so I just kept going and enjoyed! It was strange having very little thunder, just an occasional rumble, drowned out by the very regular and loud cracks from each strike.
Oh, and I love that phrase 'Wild Magic', that summed up what I experienced perfectly! especially the vertical rainbows !
Pippi: what a splendid ship! That craftsmanship is fantastic, and the sleek lines look awesome! Where is it?
Snaily: Ouch! do you have any stockinet stuf to help support it? can sometimes help it mend better by not allowing it to flex as much.
KeiranG: What great pics, she looks very calm, a real proud dad moment for you
Nice running cycling etc, speaking of which any news from Podds yet?
Meldy: is there a live track at Outlaw? if so what number to follow?
Off to clear more of our loft out, between watching TDF... then it will be beer O'Clock
