The sun is shining!! It's looking to be a good running day for MM! We pummelled his poor legs last night and that's the first time in ages he's had to stifle the screams....he's really hurting, people. We put freeze spray on his ankle this morning and wrapped it in a cooling compress bandage. Once he gets running it seems to ease off a bit. So fingers crossed. I would like him to actually ENJOY the last few days of his run! He's gone a bit quiet on me again, which usually means he's in a lot of pain or is struggling with the day...........it could also mean he's not talking to me any more because I got my evil thumbs out again!
I've managed to get some medication for my chesty cough and so, hopefully it will soon mend and MM won't be in mortal fear of getting ill any more.
We will be staying with his brother tonight somewhere in Exeter. If any body knows of someone in the Okehampton area who would be willing to give us a bed for the night, please do let us know.
OK...MM just checked in with his running partner Amanda. Re-sprayed and dressed his leg and he is off again......what a trooper! Now off to the next rendezvous point.......................................
A couple of shots of Matt running with Amanda this morning
