Juneathon Day 10: Bike
Woke up to the sunny morning so off we went, to the beach again. This time, we started running from Noordwijk, through the dunes in the SW direction.After 3 km we came to the bridge across the old Rhine and turned towards the beach to repeat some barefoot running.My calves felt surprisingly good (here is your answer, Fairweatherrunner) but running with cold/wet feet took its toll – I had to make a quick sanitary stop. This is where I was hiding, still barefoot:We continued for about 5 km, reached the north end of Noordwijk, put on our shoes again and checked the local market. The fresh ‘Hollandse nieuwe’ (a raw harink from the new season’s catch) tasted excellent! Back to the car and home….
… where I felt restless enough to grab the MTB and hit the road again. Alone this time, through the field of nettles as high as myself, being closely watched by the local population.The round trip took 48 km. I am finally tired and done for today and 1/3rd of Juneathon is behind me. How was your weekend, everybody?
ow ow ow. I still have nettle burns on my hands from yesterday at the cross triathlon in kijkduin.
They grow like crazy now, don’t they!
Yeouch – I was having to jump over them on my trail run yesterday. Looks like you’re really embracing the barefoot running – good on you!
Calves hurt but it is Juneathon so I keep going, haha. But you rock on the trails nowadays, don’t you!?
