Tour of Cumbrae
Today's training felt a little different - a 20 mile walk! My wife, Yasmin is doing the Moonwalk in Edinburgh in just three weeks time and I volunteered to accompany her on the longest of her training walks. So we found ourselves on the 9am ferry from Largs to the Isle of Cumbrae to attempt two laps of the island - 20.25 miles in total. Despite some pretty grim weather to begin with, we put our heads down and battered on through the wind and rain, completing the first lap in just 3 hours. It brightened up for the second lap but it took us a little longer after a quick pitstop for a coffee in Millport before completing the final 3 miles back to the ferry. Back in Largs we headed straight to Nardini's to refuel. Just over 6 hours is a long time to be on your feet - hope I am OK for the club run in the morning.
