Running out of Dover yesterday morning was a bit hairy at times but thanks to the local police stopping the traffic for me we were soon out in stunning Kentish countryside. Pete and I had company yesterday, with Kevin joining us running alongside for the day. This was a real boost and really helped me on the last leg which ended up being much longer than planned making for a total of 29 miles run that day.
Legs very painful in the evening, and despite some great physio they kept me awake at night and were still very sore in the morning. Not a great start to today, felt very low psychologically and quite emotional. Heard from a friend about a young boy called Craig who is undergoing chemotherapy at Great Ormond Street Hospital and this has motivated me so much, it made me realise that he is a far braver person than I ever will be, so crack on with it Sissens and raise some money.
I seem to spend all day running up hills! Not the greatest running route, busy traffic and built up towns, a complete contrast to yesterday. The tank is getting empty now, but this could just be because I know the journey is coming to an end. The first stage today was very solitary as Pete had to follow on his bike and we were single file for 10 miles. Being joined by Andy from work was a great lift and he joined for the rest of the day though the heat.
Can’t seem to stop crying at the moment! I am slowly becoming an emotional wreck, but the wheels keep turning. Many thanks to Ruby for my lovely song which she wrote this morning which features at the start of today’s video.
