This morning the training began. And my lord, wasn't it wet! I ran just under 5 miles in 38 mins 29 seconds despite the mighty forces of nature determined to stop me. Rounding the corner into Woolacombe I found myself being blasted in the face by strong winds and ice cold rain. It was certainly an experience!
On the bright side, the route was moderately hilly, the weather was terrible, and my pace was pretty decent. I slowed down on two occasions to prevent vomiting (told you it was quite a decent pace) but overall I kept up to speed and felt pretty good.
