I usually like Wetherspoons pubs but I usually go to the ones that are housed in salvaged buildings with some architectural and/or historical distinction. This time I just dropped in to the only open pub I spotted at the end of 25 miles of training run to tank up before catching the bus home. It, too, is a Wetherspoons but the house is ugly and prefabricated and, to be perfectly fair, precisely in keeping with the overall look of Milton Keynes. I had something called a Slewfoot or Stinkfoot for £1.99 and continued on my merry way. Yuk.

I caught the X5 out to Bedford with a planned 20 mile path but got sidetracked a couple of times. The actual route went along this path:
Along the way I had wet feet the entire time, a surprisingly good (Carrington Arms) and two surprisingly bad pub experiences (Cross Keys and Wetherspoons), and came within about 15 miles of connecting my east side and central/west side run routes…next is the push to tie in London and the south coast as well as the Irish Sea. Next year I’ll start pushing northwards.
