The penultimate Janathon run was a 6 mile plod round the village at lunch time. Nothing much to report really, I saw two horse riders, plus horses. I managed to terrify Postman Pat in his little red van by appearing unexpectantly round a corner of the lane in my high vis and a nice white van man pulled in to a passing place to let me by, least I am hoping he was being nice in an ‘elf and safety kind of way, rather than an ‘oh my god she is as big as a car I better move over’ kind of way. It was a cold run so seemed apt that I saw these beauties for the first time this year.
Now with January and the lovely Janathon challenge nearly at an end its time to think ‘what is next’ I need a target, something to aim for. I am not one for entering masses of races but this is how it stands for the rest of 2014 and I do not expect it to change.
and lastly the big one. Now last year after VLM I swore that I would hang up my 26.2 mile hat and stick with half the distance and then my Essex running buddy text me to say Chelmsford will be holding their first marathon in October, so looks like I need to find a marathon training plan soon and buckle down to the training ASAP!
