Sun 10th - 5 Hour Walk
Ended up doing 6 hours covering 20.63 miles. A mixed bag of a walk, as went from Brighton to up along the South Downs, where it started off misty but ended up very wet and not many views due to the fog / mist. Was a good walk along the South Downs, then down to Falmer, and from there down to the coast where I completed the circuit by walking along the seafront until I got home.

Happy with this week as I was able to go back to the gym after a couple of weeks recovering from the recent illness. Noticed fitness had slipped back, would have struggled to do 20 mins rowing, so stuck to 10 mins. Very happy with the walk on Sunday, as it was wet conditions, and the fact that didn't really cause me any problems, means if that happens on the South Coast Challenge, I am more prepared.
