jeez that was a tough one. The downfall to doing this on a beautiful Highland moor is the wind!! blew me off track twice and wasn't the helpful wind on my back that pushes me nicely along it was awful gusty side wind. Oh well its done now and instead of happy and glowing I feel a bit beat up and cold. The couch and wood burner is calling....but only until Wednesday πŸ˜‚

it sure does...and soon will be winter, there was frost on my car this morning!

You were just mentioned on the weather forecast (not you personally 'Woman Runner Blown off Course Horror') but the North of Scotland - gusts of 60 to 70 mph coming your way.... Stoke up the wood burner :)

Good luck with W2 R3...

Well done for battling the winds. I ran in the wind on Sat and it was foul no fun at all.

You have done really well to achieve that run with all that buffeting. You've definitely earned your place on the sofa. πŸ€“
