Yesterday’s parkrun was my first run this week. I had a lovely jog around with a fellow Chelmsford marathoner, we wore our t-shirts with pride, it was great to share Killerton with her. The legs did not object at all, but the blister well it made itself known the whole way and I relished showing it off the club members, at the end, much to Madam’s horror. Feeling left out Phil? Well this is how it looks currently in full size Technicolor
Today after strapping the whole in my foot, I went for a gentle 6 mile cross-country run, choosing my favourite route, the aim of which was to like running again. I currently feel like we have fallen out, running and I, we have not been speaking, after this morning I would say we are now on nodding terms, still not chatting much! We better make up soon as plans have been made, money has been parted with, challenges entered.
- Exeter 10k Winter, mid January
- The Grizzly ‘Twentyish muddy, hilly, boggy, beachy miles of the multiest-terrain running experience’ ‘tough, hilly, some cliff paths with drops to the side, both mud and water potentially up to waist deep but nearly a third tarmac’. I might have said previously I would not do this EVER, but actually looking forward to it, no pressure of a time with this one, just an achievement to get to the end. The added bonus of running it with a running buddy too.
- The half moon walk – London May 2015. I did the full Moon with big Madam when she was 16, little Madam has since wanted to do it, she is only old enough to do the half. Training for this will be a test for Mother daughter relationships. I see long runs in the morning, followed by long runs in the afternoon in my future.
