15 miles today in the Peak District, accompanied by sun, hail, sleet and rain in no particular order (BA was also in tow, muttering darkly about tired legs). Some 'interesting' hills and I'm starting to feel quite relaxed about the relatively small amount of climb on this year's 100 - only 12,000 ft compared to around 17,000 last year.
AA: sorry to hear you are still a bit under the weather, but congratulations to Nick. Just don't try to cram in too much training before Boston.
Brol: at least Dorset hills aren't really steep - just long. Didn't feel anything as bad as the Wye Valley hills. How many ultras have you done in the run up to Comrades?
Freemers: you'll be back in Norwich before I finish in London
2Old: I waited didn't I, what more does he need??? Perhaps sensibly he kept a tight grip on the map today, we were off-road on some obscure paths and he wanted to make sure I didn't disappear leaving him totally lost.
Nell: thinking is generally found to be a mistake in my book
