Nearing the end

Yesterday morning I had planned a long run, got up suitably early stepped out the door to be met with this

Plus lightening. I sat on the terrace, ate my banana, watched and decided that as I was unsure if the holiday insurance covered being struck by lightening it was probably best to abandon the run. As it happens, this was a smart decision, the rain came soon after

I retreated back to bed, in my kit and wrote a blog! It soon blew over and I got out for a three mile trot to Garda, stopping to get groceries before getting the shuttle bus back.

This morning however I ran 9 miles along the lake, hot but bliss.

We return to the UK on Wednesday so this will be my last blog from Italy, we have no more outings planned, just quiet time around the pool. Now I could write a blog about why European men really need to wake up and not wear speedos (these only look good on Tom Daly let’s face it) I could include photographic evidence backing up my claim, but not wishing to traumatise you I shall refrain from doing so!


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!
