I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my second rest day after 19 marathons! We slept in until 7.30 am, had a fabulous breakfast of croissants and Weetabix as Hannah’s mum, Lesley, opened her birthday cards. My legs ached so deeply all I could really do today was potter on the campsite; very nice too! I had a dip in the chilly camp swimming pool, washed the car and uploaded the blog. At midday I refueled with a traditional fry-up, courtesy of Hannah`s folks. We continued the birthday celebrations in the evening with a bottle of Chianti wine that we picked up whilst in the Chianti wine region of Italy two weeks ago and we tucked into a terrific barbeque. We’ll see tomorrow whether not running a marathon for the first time in a while will help my legs to recover a little!
