Poppies

I LOVE poppies and most days cycle or run by a good selection, I don’t think in previous years that they have been this good or varied. Thought I’d share them with you before they are gone.

Aren’t they great? Now before you all think I have lost the plot and forgotten that this is meant to be a running blog not a horticultural one here is todays activities

  • 7:45 Cycle madam for school for dance
  • 7:55Cycle home for porridge
  • 8:30 Cycle back to school with madam’s lunch (first day of term it is traditional to forget something, PE kit which is what is usually left behind can be done without, lunch not so!)
  • 8:35 Cycle to work
  • 16:00 Cycled back to school to collect madam from Netball (seat wet due to rain and wore rain coat circa 2006 London marathon just in case it rained -it did not so arrived at school resembling and feeling like a roast in its bag chicken
  • 16:20 Cycled home
  • 19:45 Ran 9 miles in just over 1.5 hours-listened to Marathon Talk and the Park Run special. Very interesting , spent my time thinking of Abradypus and her Park run challenge, I wonder is she knows there is one in Denmark?!

 

 

 

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    Even in a run blog nice pics are good. Helps us feel less exhausted! 9 miles well done I’m feeling like a slacker!

    I adore poppies, though must be a tradtionalist as I like the traditional one best. I do know there are parkruns in Denmark, and Australia too and am mulling about how best to fit them in. Flying to Denmark just for a parkrun would be extreme, even for me.
