With a dislike for indoor training, despite the threat of rain and a moderate breeze, the great outdoors won my vote.
The weather forecast wasn’t great but it painted a more optimistic picture than was the reality!
Heavy rain, strong winds, debris on the roads, flooded roads, fields, cars……
Emergency tree felling to avert an accident….
And to top it all our planned stop at the fabulous Miserden Garden Centre Cafe (home to some amazing cakes) was shut.
Thankfully, The Carpenter’s Arms at Miserden had a warm welcome with it’s roaring log fires.
Despite the weather and the sense that we weren’t breaking any records today, I was thrilled to get a few Strava ‘Personal Bests’ which almost made it all worthwhile!
