Yesterday I went for a run at 8am up on the Braes. It was really windy and wet so I put on my OMM jacket and needed it. The mistake I made was to go in Hokas rather than my inov-8’s so I was slipping a fair bit.
The wind and rain was particularly strong at the top but it was good to get out for a run. As I made my way down after a couple of hours the cloud was blown away and the sun came out.
This morning we decided to stay in and watch the London Marathon. There were some great races and interesting to see how Mo got on in his first marathon. Mo had a tough time but I’m sure he learnt a lot from the whole experience. I wonder whether he will refocus on the track for Rio 2016 or stay with the Marathon.
This afternoon I’m off to Keswick to meet up with Dave. We then head over to North Yorks for our 2 day recce run on the Hardmoors route which we are both looking forward to.
