After the London Marathon I was pleased that I only had one blister, this was duly dealt with. The legs felt a bit better after Thursday (I walked daily) I had read somewhere not to run for 10 days and this sounded good to me. Today however the sun was shining, the sky was blue so I took the legs out for a lunch time treat.

The heart was in it, the head was in it but after 2 miles the legs disagreed. Maybe it was the stiles, maybe it was the stop start (new route and I had no idea where I was going) maybe it was rough terrain, or maybe the legs needs more time.

The route was lovely with great scenery and a great new 5 mile route has been found.

I also got up close to Escot Church that you can see from the A30


such a nice little church and it is in the middle of nowhere.

Great to be out there again exploring without the pressure of doing certain amount of miles or type of training, now all I have to do is convince my legs.

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!

    If you can avoid the marathon blues, then this has to be the best bit doesn’t it?
