...in the worst of all possible gales! Jog/walk.....Go forwards! Go backwards! Go up! Go Down! Repeat over & over for 20km & 2 hours 45 minutes!
I left around 9:00a.m., as usual for a long run, without breakfast , & into the wildest wind I've ever experienced in these parts. A 'tailgale' on one turn would send my flying around a bend, only to have it immediately slam me in the face as a 'headgale', practically back to where I'd just come from! It was fear that made me step it out on the return - fear that an almighty big tree would come crashing down on top of me - or a cow or a house - or all three!
Achieve anything - a backache & a splitting headache!
