Not much running

I tried to take up the Zaggora two week challenge and run every day for two weeks to see if that magical loss of 2 dress sizes would occur. I managed three days and then hubby had to go away with work so that scuppered my plans.

Last Saturday I ran with RB, the first three miles went well and then I began to get warm and flag. Only later on did I realise why when RB text me to say the first two miles were done with an average pace of 8.50!!! One day she will kill me!

With the forecast of warm weather and with it being the first week of the school holidays I made the most of it and ventured our Sunday night for 4 miles. Lesson learned from this run is not to wear the zaggora hot pants when it is warm as the heat they generate just spreads upwards to your face!

Now we are on Thursday and I have not run since Sunday!! Am hoping to pop out this evening for a cool run and then again tomorrow when madam is at her Godmothers, this will be a hot one but will take it gently.

We have had a great first week to the hols (apologies to all those who work through the summer) yesterday we spent at the seaside and for the first time in 30 years I went in to the sea, got very wet and loved it!! The rest of the time has been spent by the paddling pool.

Good luck to all those mad brave bloggers doing the TR24 this weekend. I wish the most luck to the person who is given the dangerous task of waking up Carla!!

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!

    Lol! Thank you, and I think that Plustenner may have drawn that particular short straw.
