Ten x Ten Challenge: Day. 7 Great North Punishment
Essentially we are cheating including this challenge. However, I did run over 10 miles (13.1 miles in fact) in the time of 1 hour 52 minutes. Fairly respectable for someone who has not done much running (or training) since high school. And just like drinking ten espressos this challenge has little to do with road cycling but did test my body and mind. I happily concur that long distance running is a tough sport and whilst I aim to do a marathon next year, I didn't enjoy this in anyway as much as a cyclo-sportive or even a 100km slog in the wind and rain. I congratulate all those people (some dressed as trees, giraffes and chickens) who did it in fancy dress for a good cause. My legs are absolutely shot to pieces today so a triathlon is next, I suppose. Or perhaps I'll just stick with the bicycle.
