Oh my when I ran last night with club it was cold and at 7:45 this morning it had not warmed up any, even the weather station was showing a flashing snowflake. Brrrr. I set off cursing my keenness, it would be warmer at lunchtime I mumbled to myself (wet though in the end). Once I got to the top of the hill I came upon ice

photo 1 due to the health and safety of my coccyx I walked for a while. I was relieved when I came to the typical Devon road with grass in the middle, great terra firma and off I went until…… I went over on my ankle

Oh ‘insert swear word of your choice’ that hurt, run it off Shaz, oh ****, keep going Shaz, owwww, owwww, its getting better keep going, don’t stop” on I plodded and pleased to say it is fine, but my that was close.

I was pleased to see these whilst on my way back, surely this means the cold is on its way out?!


Janathon effort today completed by 8:30 surely means I get double points?! 9 miles on the exercise bike and 4 miles ran in the cold

Lastly a present for you





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!

    Yes, 2 chocolates for you: 1 for running before 8:30 am, 1 for running when it was icy and cold. 🙂

  4. Ankles aside… I don’t believe you still have chocolates.

    I think you took photos of them all ages ago and like the stars in the sky – we may be seeing them now, but some time after they have ceased to exist!

    That ice does not look nice. Take care out there!

    Seriously can’t believe you have choices left still – I’d’ve so tucked into all of those by now. Grat Janathoning and choice hauling!
