Today has been a monumentally tough day. Climb after climb after climb coupled with rain all day has made today long and miserable. Three of the climbs today had a gradient of 25%. The only problem with the climbs is that the down hill is equally as steep and hurts alot. Your messages have kept me going today. A message came through tonight at the end of my day saying they had passed me yesterday and they couldnt believe I was still smiling. Think thats the one thing I will remember from this, when everything hurts and your body is screaming to stop, just smile and plod on. Had to go up a size of trainer on my left foot due to the swelling but it was much more comfortable after the change. In Newton Abbott tonight heading towards Plymouth tomorrow. One highlight from today was running through the town of Beer, unfortuately I didnt have a beer in Beer. Sorry for the short update tonight. Shattered just doesnt cover it.
