Mental and Physical exercise

This mornings run was a test both in physical and mental agility. It was intervals which involved fast/slow pace over 200 metres. I discovered 200 metres converts to 0.12 miles. Now the 12 times table is not my strongest (none are to be honest, missed out on the mathematical mind gene totally, due to it skipping a generation!) but this morning had to count up in 12, 24 times. Take it from me it was not easy at 5 am.

Tomorrows long run looms, only 13 miles, am hoping stomach issues that were horrendous last week will not reoccur due to a mostly wheat free diet this week, if I still have problems I plan on eating my weight in bread when I get in.

Saw this when I was in Devon recently do you think Rachel is moonlighting?

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!
