Spent far too long in the pub yesterday, first watching the Swiss getting beaten and then of course England's famous victory. As a Brit living in Switzerland you'll understand I had little choice in this. All of which meant that this morning's run was going to be a bit of a challenge.
It was a warm morning so I went to a nearby village where a relatively flat mountain trail starts at 5,300 feet. Nice and fresh up there, so off I go with Ken Bruce on the headset being interrupted by instructions from Michael. A few minutes before half-way I was convinced that the app must have crashed, until eventually Michael told me I'd done 14 minutes and kindly reminded me that I might want to up the pace a little. Shut up Michael.
I got through the remaining minutes somehow, but boy, was it tough. The views (pic) are absolutely inspiring however, with the Jungfrau glacier looking down on me like a disapproving aunt watching a mischievous child.
Mike's top tip - don’t expect to run very well after spending a long evening in the pub watching football.
