Double Runs

Its the way forward, I am telling you, scrap the fartlek, the tempos, hill training, long runs, intervals, yes scrap all that, it’s all about the double runs, you heard it here first.

At lunch time I did a nice 4 mile plod around the lanes, it would be lovely to live in this farmhouse except for the pot holes on the lane, it was bad enough running and dodging them let alone avoiding them with four wheels.

and when hubby came home we went out for a mile run. (For those of you who know hubby, yes you have read that right!) The sky was amazing (clearly in honour of this occasion)


Hubby did well, I left him to get home in the shower whilst I dashed to the shop for some Yorkshire Puddings, clocking up another mile

Enjoyed both runs, so am telling you its the way forward. Try it.


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!

    GLORIOUS sunset! WOW!!
    My hubby unfortunately is an ex ultra tri-athlete, i have lived in his shadow for 30 years… i wish i would come home to a couch potato, meat eating, crisp devouring, ale swilling chocoaholic some days… haaa ha ha haaa… oh to be guilt free!
    Seriously though, i LOVE going with him for a run now, he used to be at me like a flipping coach, drove me up the wall and totally turned me off… he has since learnt… now he lets me do my own thing, he does his and we enjoy the company.
    I think its lovely, enjoy and GO SHAZZASHUBBY 🙂
    Ps, the cat is the best!

  4. Beautiful sunset! Thanks so much for sharing.
