Today was the same except it wasn't raining. I found a few large puddles and soggy trails though. Again not much fun but with a thermal hat and two pairs of thermal gloves it wasn't too bad.
In terms of the weather in this part of the world, the best day this week is forecast to be Wednesday ... the one day I'm not running. Typical bad planning. Not by me !!!
Congratulations too to Ellie Greenwood and Lizzy Hawker on their excellent performances in last weekend's World & European 100k Championships which were held in Gibralter. For GB to have the gold and bronze medals is truly remarkable - especially as those two runners could be said to be trail running specialists.
Reading the reports carefully it appears that the course measurement or route marking wasn't up to the usual standard and for much of the race the km marking were about 1.3 km beyond where they should have been. At the pace Ellie was running that's almost 6 minutes.
That's one problem we don't have in 24 hour races.
