F@#&* gales! There, I've said it! Friggin' gales! No wonder I can't run out of sight on a dark night.....however I could barely stay in sight this morning! I don't mind that it was cold, but the wind was something not to behold! As I said to big 'W' when I emailed my report, I had to hang onto not just my cap, but my jumper & shorts as well! Shredded I was by the time I finished & now I'm walking around like an old woman & not at all like Chickybabe!
I was to do 80minutes, but that became 101 by the time I clambered back up the cliff from which I'd been blown (!!) &, more importantly, I had to round off the kms which took me to 7km out & the same back.
52:24 out & 49:17 back & not a breath did I have left in my body!
