24th October - Teethgrinder Day 78/297
« on: October 24, 2015, 01:44:59 pm »
A very late start today. Hope the party made it worthwhile   ;D

Heading off as usual in the direction of the Wash. Hope the weather is drier and less grey than where I currently am.

Looks like it might be a lowish mileage day by Steves standards,  so make the most of the rest, Steve.

Then Go Again. 😎

After his late start Steve has been making very good progress; a sign, let's hope, that his leg problem has cleared up.  Assuming he continues for about another 2hrs, he should comfortably do 200+, which is excellent for a 'short' day.  And the clocks go back tonight, which may help, although whether he'll really get 'an extra hour in bed' is perhaps doubtful!

Unsurprising later start today. So I cafeinated and got a bit of a move on for the first 100 miles. Left leg did threaten to spoil my day but it turned out to be a few minor grumbles and it held up very well.

I'm gonna limp to the pub and drink 'til the rest of me is as numb as my arse.

Always delighted when Steve confounds my pessimism and takes himself closer to the "Godwin line".

Even more so when it takes a chomp out of Kurt's same day total.  Steve hadn't been making much inroad into that, but yesterday was an exception (albeit I wouldn't wish the reasons for it to happen again, Stateside).
