15.5 Miles of wind and rain!
Went for a long slow run, marathon training in full swing... It was very wet and windy! Hence we decided not to run on the downs and to stick to a fairly sheltered route. We even managed to plan the seafront stretch so we had the wind behind us.
We nearly had to dodge a few waves as they were coming up to the path, the only other people we saw were a few very brave dog walkers who looked very well wrapped up, (and nearly laughed at us in lycra) and a fisherman on the seafront selling his catch.
I can honestly say the last few miles were the hardest- a slight uphill all the way and my legs felt like they weren't really listening to my brain, instead they seemed to be stuck into a pace and doing their own thing. Still- no blisters which must be a good thing, and I could still walk the following day!
Quite looking forward to the marathon now :-)
