Today there was not too much joy in my heart. The little man has gone but having had a second hard day on the National Highway 17 (NH 17) I am struggling even without the little guy whispering in my ear. Over the last two or three days the humidity has increased as well so its feels even hotter and I am sweating profusely. I have even taken to wearing a small wet towel under my hat as I traipse along the dusty road. It also doesn’t help that they are in the process of widening the NH 17 and the resulting dust gets whipped up by the speeding lorries and blown into my eyes and mouth. In short, the last two days have been a real slog not helped by my right knee playing up and my left foot swelling. Sachin gave me some good advice at the end of the day to help me through these tougher times: “This is what you do, this was always going to be a big challenge, this is what you have trained for”.
