Running Rotten Row

Nice after work drink (alcohol-free) at The Crown on Clerkenwell Green last evening for a new colleague. Cycled home, donned the running garb and trotted round the park again. This time I went on a wider loop taking in Rotten Row.

Probably about 4 miles, but as I have still not found my Garmin I can’t be sure!! Hope to find it tomorrow, ahead of Saturday’s long run.


Back in my running boots! Yay!

Finally got rid of my cold after a quiet, relaxing weekend in Glastonbury and Wells where they thoughtfully built a cathedral for me about eight hundred years ago.

Walked in the beautiful Somerset countryside near Butleigh and looked over the land.

And after a busy day back in the office at Justgiving today, I ran five and half slow miles around the Heath in an hour this evening. Good to be back training.

Nine slow miles around the Heath

Too much delicious food last night and a slight cold this morning made me want to go back to bed after breakfast, but I’m glad I didn’t. Managed nine miles around the Heath with Andy and Mia, followed by more delicious food for lunch at their place. So this week I totted up 23 training miles, which is not bad, but I’m going to have to keep an eye on my left foot.

Went to the London Marathon Golden Bond weekend yesterday and the lovely people at Adidas took a computer print of my gait and gave me some good advice and sold me two pairs of new running shoes for the price of one. Tried my Supernova Riot trail shoes on the Heath this morning. The added grip is just the job for the mud, slush and remmnants of snow.

Need to keep the training momentum going.
