A lovely alarm clock awakening at 4am and a dead mouse with his head ripped off greeted me on arrival in my lounge first thing. A nice touch from my cat. Drove to cold Ashton. Beautiful sunrise/morning and set off for 6am. Ran straight down a Bank and dropped one of my snazzy new ear buds into long grass. Great start but found it eventually. So many fields/styles/stinging nettles/awkward dry dusty ankle tweaking rutty droves/really hot/ran out of water/got really bad cramp. Got the FKT though I think/hope.
