Went to the Clergy House in Alfriston today. It was built in the 14th century and was the National Trust's first purchase in 1896 for £10. After lunch MrsJJ, me and the doodle walked for 3 hours over the South Downs and the Seven Sisters towards Beachy Head. The wind off the sea over the cliff tops was gusting to gale force - very bracing.
Incidently, we followed part of the Beachy Head off road marathon course so some of you will know the bit over the Seven Sisters.
That marathon sounds about as messy as it gets.
I think you have a similar problem to me. I only know one way to race and that's as fast as possible. If you try and do it that way without being fully fit you end up being dissatisfied and/or injured.
I've been to Pagham but it was donkey's years ago. I think I've done virtually all the gardens in Kent and East Sussex.
Looks like sub-30 is beginning to beckon. Tempted?
