We are starting to learn the ropes a little and the run, although effortful, was more straight-forward today. We got up at 5am once again (Hannah is wondering what she signed up for here!) and it felt more like UK temperatures, at least initially before the sun came up... Eating bananas, dried fruit and snacks frequently and drinking more during the brief 'pitstops' we completed the 26.2 miles in under 4 and a half hours. Today's route took us up to the dramatic hillside town of Monte Via Scone and down to the stunning Lago Di Vico, into which I plunged at the end! Very refreshing! During my training I completed 7 20-mile runs in 7 days (during school half-term). After this I ran as much and as often as I could depending on work commitments. Running 3 conceutive marathons in 3 days is new territory for me and, after a fairly awful first day, I'm greatly relieved and feeling in reasonable shape! Only one blister, some mild chaffing and a stiff calf muscle to report after nearly 80 miles.
