Dwindling distance

When I am following a training plan, I am fine, I do the runs, the distance, the effort required on the day scheduled. However being ‘off plan’ (is this the equivalent to off piste for runners?) my runs operate on a very flexible schedule.

In the morning I think ‘tonight I will do a 9 mile run’, by lunchtime this has shrunk to ‘tonight I will do a 5 mile run’, mid afternoon it goes to ‘tonight I will do a 3 mile run’, but low and behold once hubby is home it has dwindled to ‘tonight I will do a 1 mile run’ I am sure this is a medical condition I am suffering from not just laziness. Tonight however I pulled on my kit that was still damp from yesterdays run (ew ew ew) and pushed the boundaries and did 1.5 miles. Go me.

I will leave you with a photo or Riley who has been to the hairdressers for his short back and side.


Just as well its warm.

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!
