Marathon training and glow plugs

On Easter Monday I walked from Harlesden to Rickmansworth, in training for the London marathon. I will be spectating, while Jeremy is running (see his fundraising page). He ran 22.1 miles in just under three hours. I walked 9 miles, in about 2 and a half hours – stopping to work a couple of locks on the way.

Then in the evening to the boat in Ely, for a brief cruise north towards Littleport – a glorious sunset. In the morning back to the marina to work on the glow plugs (a little frustrating – see this thread for the full detail!), and change the oil. Then a brief cruise south to Little Thetford, very pleasant mooring and pootled about doing various jobs.
