My weather app warned me there would be gale force winds today that could lead to ‘minor damage to houses’ and it was raining as I set out from Thornham. But the skies cleared as I got to the coast and the wind was exhilarating, buffeting me from every side and slowing me down. The path goes through a nature reserve just behind the most beautiful beach.
Just before Hunstanton I turned inland to follow the Peddars Way, an old Roman road. It follows roads at the start but after a while it becomes a muddy track between fields.
The end of my run today was always going to be my mum coming to pick me up in the car, but the place where I asked her to meet me has changed several times over the last few days. In the end she met me in Sedgeford at lunchtime after nine blustery miles. It’s been a fantastic run and my back has been fine but my knee is now protesting so time for a rest.
