Quick circumnavigation of Taunton
Because of the heat, we decided upon a quick 20 miler around the edge of Taunton. The weather was kind: slightly overcast and we buzzed through Stoke St Mary, Creech St Michael, Kingston St Mary....you get the drift: we went anywhere named after a Saint! Pace was good: 10.26 mph and morale was high as we'd decided to bring forward the planned start date to two weeks today! Of course, in deciding on those new plans I completely missed the fact that it is the World Cup Final that day. Although reasonably confident that England will not be there, Spain exiting the competition this afternoon has certainly meant there is a chance that our pace will have to be high enough to be in Tongue by 4pm!
