Day Eleven – 27 January 2020
We had a real treat for breakfast this morning – porridge! After getting used to simply fruit or toast, it was a luxury to have something that felt slightly more comforting and nourishing. We were late setting off this morning as our kit was drenched in the rain last night, but once it was dry we were on our way. After last night’s rains we were running in very dry heat with temperatures soon climbing to 33 degrees. We saw monkeys for the first time today – so many of them coming out of the trees and no doubt wondering what on earth we were doing! We managed 25 miles today which I’m very happy with as I’m still recovering from the shin injury.
