Started mild 13C and sunny, ended warmer – at least 15C sunny and felt hotter in the breeze-sheltered parts of Rother Valley.  Set off at an easy pace to leave energy for an extra lap of RV, target 19 miles.  Carried a gel, 4 packs of jelly babies and first outing for a long time of the Camelbak waist pack with 700ml water.  (I’d forgotten to buy a bottle of water)  Paced it nicely and though slowing and tired on the two closing laps of RV I kept it going and finished in OK shape.  No niggles showed up, and really pleased with that.  Pleased with HR too.
