Wagon Driving

This week I have met the driver of the wagon, I am sitting up there with him, but he wont let me drive, yet. His name is Soleus and he is applying the brake slightly despite my persistent persisting pestering to take over the reins. I discovered his name with the help of Dr Google and Monday he was a grumpy Soleus, no amount of rubbing down with deep freeze, rolling with the foam roller and drugging with Ibuprofen could cheer him up. Dr Google mentioned rest as a way to cheer him up, but at the moment we are negotiating on that one. This morning we did some hills together, gently, he was happy with that. I am well aware that I need to be nice to him or we might bend a spoke or worse yet lose a wheel altogether. Lets hope he is in a good mood tomorrow night so we can spend 5 miles cruising the streets of Exeter together.

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!

    Feed him alcohol – then he’ll have to let you drive.

    Grumpy Mr. Soleus has a partner in crime–Sullen Mr. Achilles–right? Treat him well!
