Day 7

Thank god! Feels more like day 14! Carlisle to Irvine (near Glasgow) totalling 104 miles taking 5 hours 50 minutes. Both Richard and myself woke up in a more positive mood, quite surprising after yet another poor nights sleep! Anyway, we set off like rockets notching up 50 miles inside 3 hours which took its toll after lunch where we slowed up but when we hit the rolling hills of Scotland and the heavens opened we soon found our second wind and nailed the last 2 hours. First real outing in the rain it was not enjoyable! Couldn't see a thing through our glasses and with no waterproofs we were drenched as well as being freezing cold, not enjoyable! Peter was on top form once again with everything we needed on hand and some aggressive words of encouragement, if you can call it that!

A big thankyou to Phil Clever, 108 Harley Street and Whitworths for their sponsorship which has been greatfully received.
