Today was Jim Plunkett-Cole’s 1,000th day of running at least 10k a day (with no breaks). So to support him I rearranged my training schedule slightly by doing my long run yesterday, and headed over to run the Mells Scenic 7.
It’s not a flat course, and it’s both on and off-roads, with some of those ‘running along the side of a hill’ moments on freshly cut fields. Plenty of stiles to clamber over, gates to squeeze through and single-file tracks through high grass and nettles.
I was just the wrong side of the hour, but finished as 5th lady and 2nd in my age category. The lady who was first in my age category (Clare Prosser) was also first lady overall, so the organisers gave me the age category award, which was nice.
