Hannah slept with her ski hat on last night – here in the Alsace it is only 9 or 10 degrees Celsius at night… I began running with gloves but it very quickly warmed up as the sun came up and by midday it was a pleasant 27 degrees Celsius. The route today was undulating and scenic and the roads were mostly quiet. I felt somewhat lethargic though and I struggled to take my mind away from the aching knee and Achilles whilst running! When I feel more ‘on-form’ my mind can be elsewhere and the miles seem to tick by. The final few miles today were really arduous as the heat became a factor and I just had to persevere! Tomorrow Hannah’s Mum and Dad, Lesley and Keith, finish their holiday with us and return to the UK. We will miss them enormously; their support and good-humour (on occasions through torrential rain and floods!) has been unbelievable.
