I still felt like my body was trying to overcome a cold, as my legs seemed heavy. And, as such, the 5 mile run of the Hancock Half Hour Handicap felt particularly difficult – although I did manage to sneak under 30 mins.
Saturday was then a run/walk of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge – covering close to 25 miles of hilly, often muddy, terrain. It was particularly hard work, and explains the aching throughout my legs in the following days. On the plus side, it should be great training for Switzerland, although I didn’t feel like I could continue for another 5 miles, let alone another 25.
